Typical features for this type of ekg rhythm include the following. Heart rate that is fast 100 250 bpm and rhythm that is regular.

Pin On Cardio

Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia consists of a rapid regular succession of ventricular extrasystoles each with the same configuration.

Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia strip. Qrs duration exceeds 0 12 s and is usually greater than 0 14 s. The qrs complex is wide 0 10 sec bizarre looking. Each ventricular impulse is being generated from the same place in the ventricles thus all of the qrs waves look the same.

In monomorphic ventricular tachycardia the shape of each heart beat on the ecg looks the same because the impulse is either being generated from increased automaticity of a single point in either the left or the right ventricle or due to a reentry circuit within the ventricle. Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia is a more organized rhythm than the polymorphic form and patients may maintain a reasonable hemodynamic state. Treatment of monomorphic vt is dependent upon whether the patient is stable or unstable.

There are several different varieties of vt the most common being monomorphic vt. This is ventricular tachycardia monomorphic. In the absence of hypotension monomorphic ventricular tachycardia can be treated with intravenous sotalol 1 mg kg to a maximum of 100 mg or amiodarone 5 mg kg.

Ventricular tachycardia vt is a broad complex tachycardia originating in the ventricles. Monomorphic ventricular tachycardia with monomorphic vt all of the qrs waves will be symmetrical. The p wave is typically absent and the pr interval is not measurable.
