Polymorphic ventricular tachycardia is an abnormally fast rhythm of the ventricles below the heart. The normal heart rate for adults is 60-100 beats per minute. In exercises commonly known as v-tach, the heart rate can reach up to 170 beats per minute or even faster. V-tach tach can be monomorphic or polymorphic. Ecg tracing is consistent in single state v-tach and follows the same pattern. In polymorphic v-tach, ecg patterns can be irregular due to the origin of ventricular signaling.
