What Are the Common Ventricular (Bottom-Chamber) Tachycardias?

This is the sixth podcast in the What are Palpitations? series and it focuses on the common ventricular arrhythmias that many patients may experience. We will be discussing premature ventricular contractions (called PVC’s) which are very common and thankfully usually quite harmless. We will also be discussing various types of ventricular tachycardias; many are easily treated though some may require defibrillator therapy. A brief outline includes:

  1. Premature ventricular contractions
  2. Ventricular tachycardia
  3. Non–coronary disease VT
  4. What are defibrillators?

Please check back with the Heart Rhythm Center for future podcasts to include:

  • Treatment Options for Arrhythmias
  • The Electrophysiology Study and Ablation Procedure
  • Possible Complications of Electrophysiology Studies and Ablations
  • Postoperative Care after an EP Study (and possible ablation)
  • Psychosocial Impact of Arrhythmias
