Cool Paroxysmal Atrial Tachycardia?

Has anyone had any experience with Paroxysmal Atrial Tachycardia (PAT)? Treatment times, what testing FAA required, Special Issuance issuance time, etc.?

Thanks.

If it's supraventricular tachycardia, with no other symptoms and controlled through either meds or ablation, after initial deferral should be just an annual report from cardio to include EKG. Initially, expect labs, holter monitor, and possibly stress test.
