Atrial Fibrillation with a Run of VT
This a 7 lead rhythm summary that I printed from our monitor of a patient in atrial fibrillation. Hopefully you can enlarge it on your computer. The QT interval is about .44 sec. A couplet occurs right after the T wave and induces a run of VT. Not quite an R-on-T episode but very close. Perhaps enough of the ventricle was still in a relative state of depolarization to induce the run of VT.
