75 year old female patient with coronary artery disease and vascular disease monitored. Patient also has an upper GI bleed.
Rhythm analysis indicates a sinus tachycardia. Frequent premature atrial complexes (PACs) are seen. Conversion to supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) with a rate over 150 bpm is then observed.
This encounter shows a fast sinus rhythm with a large amount of premature atrial complexes (PACs), before converting into supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) at a rate over 150 bpm. SVT starts from either the atria or atrioventricular node, and has a high rate of over 100 bpm. Unlike sinus tachycardia, SVT has a sudden onset and ending.
