Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmia requiring emergency medical care. VT is readily recognized on the electrocardiogram. VT is usually caused by ischemic or structural heart disease, electrolyte disturbances, or the effects of drug therapy. Emergency treatment of VT follows the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) algorithms for pulseless VT and stable and unstable VT with a pulse.
