Carlos Silva left the first inning of today's Cubs game in Denver. He was later hospitalized with an irregular heartbeat. Hope things turn out okay.

I hope this turns out to be nothing. Best wishes to a speedy recovery and that this isn't serious.

I knew he left with some sickness, but didn't know it might be this serious. I hope he gets this cleared up okay.

I wish a good healthy recovery to him. Any sort of health problems related to heart is nothing to scoff at.

I can support that comment fully. Quick and speedy recovery Carlos!

I bet it turns out to be altitude sickness or hiatal hernia of some kind.

No matter what, hope he's ok.

Or alcohol use, or electrolytes out of balance. If PSVT is a recurring problem, it can be controlled with medication. It doesn't have to affect his life.

I heard WGN News say this morning the heart rate was up over 150 beats/minute. Wow. :o:

Obviously it is nothing to scoff at but irregular heartbeats are something that are not all that uncommon right? I mean of course it will not let him play but I mean he should be OK as a fellow human right?

It doesn't have to affect his life.My wife has PSVT, and used medication to control it for a few years. When she was pregnant, though, she had to go off the meds and it got really bad - during the last two months, we had to go to the ER three different times because her heart was going well over 220 BPM. She wound up having to have a cardiac ablation (http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/treating-arrhythmias-ablation) to deal with it. Hopefully, Silva's case isn't that bad.

Sounds like he had a rapid heartbeat issue. I had that about 12 years ago and when I hear about this it hits home hard. It is a very scary issue because you never know when it will happen. You can be sitting there calm and then all of sudden your heart is beating like you ran a 50 yard dash but your lungs are trying to breathe normally. Good luck Carlos.

Silva visited a cardiologist at Northwestern Medical and he may need a cardiac ablation once another round of diagnostic tests have been completed.

Says the recovery time would be 10-14 days, but I'm not going to lie, if I just had some doctor mess around with my ticker, I'd be in no rush to rejoin my baseball team that's 20 or so games under .500.
