In a patient CVP and intra-arterial pressure were monitored. During the monitoring the patient suddenly developed supraventricular tachy¬cardia. Changes seen in the pressure reading are:
|A||Increased CVP and decreased BP|
|B||Increased CVP and SP|
|C||Decreased CVP and increased BP|
|D||Decreased CVP and BP|
Increased CVP and decreased BP
Any arrhythmia can occur during CVP catheterization. In supraventricular tachycardia the atrial filling is compromised leading to decreased venous return from head and neck thereby increasing the CVP PSVT can sometimes cause life threating hypotension.
