Tachycardia, Ventricular

Kammartakykardi

Svensk definition

En onormalt snabb kammarrytm med breda QRS-komplex, oftast över 150 per minut. Störningen uppstår inuti kammaren, under His bunt, och är vanligen förknippad med atrioventrikulär dissociation.

Engelsk definition

An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the BUNDLE OF HIS, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide QRS complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (AV dissociation).
