Supraventricular Tachycardia

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a type of rapid heartbeat that originates above the ventricles (the lower chambers of the heart) and is characterized by a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute (often 150-200 BPM).

Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW)

Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, is a heart condition that may cause rapid heartbeats or arrhythmias. In people with WPW, an extra electrical pathway or nerve can conduct electrical impulses from the upper to the lower chambers

Fig 81 AF


Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in which the heart's upper chambers (atria) beat irregularly and much faster than normal. Instead of contracting in a coordinated and rhythmic way, the atria quiver or "fibrillate,"

Fig 82 Flutter Converted

Atrial Flutter

Atrial flutter is a type of abnormal heart rhythm or arrhythmia that occurs when the upper chambers of the heart, called the atria, beat too fast and in a regular pattern. During atrial flutter, the atria can beat at rates of 250-350 beats per minute

Ectopic Beats

Ectopic beats are abnormal heartbeats that originate from outside the normal electrical system of the heart. These beats are also known as premature beats because they occur before the next expected regular heartbeat.

Ventricular Tachycardia

Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is an abnormal heart rhythm in which the heart's lower chambers (ventricles) beat very quickly and out of sync with the upper chambers (atria), which can lead to decreased blood flow to the body.
