Different forms of sustained potentially fatal VTs.
A. Sustained monomorphic VT recorded from a patient with a left ventricular aneurysm
B. Sustained polymorphic VT in a patient with myocardial ischemia.
C. Ventricular flutter often has a sine wave configuration with a cycle length of 200 to 220 ms
D. Coarse VF
E. Fine VF
A careful distinction between the different morphologies and rates of tachyarrhythmia contains important information for prognosis and management.
