The article offers a review that focuses on techniques for scrutinizing electrocardiograms of patients and examining tachycardia's onset and mode of termination. It also investigates the impact of premature ventricular contraction, premature atrial contractions, and aberrancy during tachycardia. It evaluates the short and long-term management of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Moreover, it depicts the management of patients who have ongoing symptomatic SVT.

    Ventricular tachyarrhythmia is a cardiac disease in which the electrocardiogram shows occurrence of ventricular tachycardia, flutter and fibrillation. This tachycardia is often precursor to ventricular fibrillation or stoppage of heart beats. In this paper a comparison has been shown between the...
