Where does Wolfe Parkinsons white come from?


Posted by Welch

My child has Wolfe Parkinsons white. Where does this come from? My EKG's are normal. Is it genetic?

Wolff-Parkinson-WHite syndrom happens at birth, when a child is born with an extra/abnormal electrical pathway inthe heart, which in turn leads to a fast hearthbeat known as tachycardia. People of any age can experience symptoms of WPW. It is usually not life threatening but can be serious for the heart.
