EKG Rhythm Strip

Identify the following rhythm (Click on the image to enlarge it).

Biventricular paced beats with an 11 beat run of ventricular tachycardia. The rate of the VT is about 150 bpm.  Complex 4 is a fusion beat and you can see that the pacemaker fired at the same time the ventricular ectopic beat occur. The 5th beat falls on the later half of the T wave so this may have triggered the run of VT.  A fusion beat concludes the run of VT and biventricular pacing resumes.
