I was in ventricular tachycardia for two hours. I managed over 300bpm.
A 150 Joule defibrillation shock was necessary to stop the arrhythmia.
The above electrocardiogram shows that I have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.
A week later I had a catheter ablation at the QE in Birmingham.
It went well and now I don't have the extra pathway.
I would like to thank my wife Laura, my work colleagues and first aiders, Warwickshire ambulance and paramedics, the A&E and CCU teams at Warwick Hospital, and the Cardiology team at Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Without the help of these amazing people I might not be alive today.
