ABSTRACT
Deals with the guidelines issued by the American Heart Association, urging healthcare providers to distinguish between supraventricular tachycardia and ventricular tachycardia in a hemodynamically stable patient before any treatment is begun. Basis of the 2000 guidelines; Treatment options; Clues that can help determine whether the origin of the rhythm is coming from the ventricles or above them. INSETS: Normal vs. abnormal conduction;Pinpointing the origin of an ectopic pacemaker: Axis....
