Also known as: V-Tach, VT, cardiac arrhythmia, irregular heartbeat
Ventricular tachycardia is the medical term for a rapid heartbeat that affects the ventricles, or the lower chambers of the heart. It varies in severity and can lead to complications in many instances if left untreated.
The condition occurs due to an electrical problem with the heart. This can occur because of certain medical conditions or the use of some medications. Using caffeine, nicotine, alcohol or other drugs can increase the risk.
