Learn more about Ventricular tachycardia

Content updated on Sep 20, 2022

What is ventricular tachycardia?

This is a type of abnormal heart rhythm where the lower chambers of the heart contract unusually quickly. As a result, there is insufficient time to fill up these chambers with blood before the blood is pumped out to the body, and the rest of the body receives insufficient blood supplying oxygen. The cause is not always known - it may be due to heart disease, inflammation of the heart tissue or being born with structural problems in the heart.

Symptoms of ventricular tachycardia

  • Feel the heart is pounding

  • Losing consciousness during a physical activity

  • Chest pain

Questions your doctor may ask to check for ventricular tachycardia

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose ventricular tachycardia

  • Do you feel your heart is pounding?

  • Did you faint (lose consciousness) while walking or performing an activity?

  • Do you have any chest pain?

Treatment for ventricular tachycardia

Sustained ventricular tachycardia is a potentially dangerous condition that requires treatment. This may involve medications to help the heart to maintain a normal rhythm, a procedure to destroy the cells responsible for the ventricular tachycardia, an implanted device to monitor and correct abnormal rhythms or, in some cases, surgery.
