Methods such as medical treatment, synchronized cardioversion, and ablation treatment are used in order to restore the patients to sinus rhythm. In this article, the phenomenon of persistent supraventricular tachycardia in newborns, in which a response cannot be obtained form various antiarrhythmic agents and synchronized cardioversion, is presented. Furthermore, the significance of the preparation process in order to provide careful administration of antiarrhythmic drugs, the prevention of severe complications based on synchronized cardioversion and the significance of discharge training process in order to prevent the recurrence of the attacks are emphasized.
