      There is little known about the patient perspective in patients suffering from paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT), a condition with a sudden onset of fast heart rhythm. PSVT affects approximately 0, 2 – 1 % of the population in the Western world.

      PSVT is a syndrome rather than a diagnosis, with recurring symptoms that affect self-imposed restrictions in daily life and has an adverse impact on quality of life. Knowledge regarding how PSVT influences daily life, the effects of treatment in relation to quality of life and utilization of healthcare is limited. The patient perspective on participation and support is needed to develop the healthcare for this group of patients.

      The overall aim of this thesis is to deepen the understanding of patient's self-care and experience of the ablation treatment, focusing on patient participation, need of support in care and health process. Further, to explore healthcare needs and utilization in patients with PSVT.
