Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is one of the most common conditions requiring emergency cardiac care in neonates. Atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia utilizing an atrioventricular bypass tract is the most common form of SVT presenting in the neonatal period. There is high likelihood for spontaneous resolution for most of the common arrhythmia substrates in infancy. Pharmacological agents remain as the primary therapy for neonates.
