More about Ventricular Tachycardia

Ventricular Tachycardia is a rapid heartbeat that starts in the ventricles, with a pulse rate of more than 100 beats per minute, with at least three irregular heartbeats in a row.  The condition can develop as an early or late complication of a heart attack. It may also occur in patients with Cardiomyopathy, Heart failure, Heart surgery, Myocarditis, Valvular heart disease.  It can also occur without heart disease.  Scar tissue may form in the muscle of the ventricles days, months, or years after a heart attack. This can lead to ventricular tachycardia.  Ventricular tachycardia can also be caused by: Anti-arrhythmic medications, changes in blood chemistry(such as a low potassium level), changes in pH (acid-base) and/or lack of enough oxygen (source: nih.gov).
