Wide Complex Tachycardia
Wide Complex Tachycardia. The pages are on the same pages. The first page shows the underlying sinus rhythm so you can evaluate the QRS complexes. The second page shows the same patient with a faster heart rate, around 150 bpm The morphology of the QRS complexes is the same as the underlying rhythm seen on the first page. Without knowing the underlying rhythm it would be easy to confuse the fast rhythm for VT.
