You are seeing a 3 year old with 2nd lifetime episode of SVT. The patient has no other prior PMH, was not on any medications, was healthy prior, and does not have WPW. After 2 doses of properly administered adenosine, the patient is still in SVT. She is alert, not toxic, has good perfusion, and is not hypotensive.
