An EKG shows a V-tach of over 100 BPM. Tachycardia may originate in the ventricles or the atria. V-tach may be stable, unstable, or life-threatening. Simulations demonstrate all three.
Also known as prolonged or long QT intervals, torsades de pointes is an uncommon form of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) characterized by a gradual change in the amplitude and twisting of the QRS complexes around the isoelectric line.
This condition is a lethal dysrhythmia in which no effective contractions are produced. Nurses must make sure the leads are properly connected to the monitor and connected to the patient.
