Ventricular Tachycardia EKG Reference
Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a cardiac arrhythmia characterized by a pulse rate of more than 100 beats per minute, with at least three irregular heartbeats in a row. The electrical signals causing this rapid beating originate in the ventricles. This is a very serious arrhythmia as it may lead to life threatening conditions such as ventricular fibrillation, asystole and sudden death.
