In our case, the incessant tachyarrhythmia was resistant to overdrive pacing as well as medical and electrical cardioversion.
CVS manifestations can exhibit a wide spectrum at every stage, ranging from signs of stimulation (hypertension, tachyarrhythmia) to depression (hypotension, bradyarrhythmia, cardiac arrest).
Holter recordings were studied for tachyarrhythmia, bradyarrhythmias, and premature atrial, junctional and ventricular complexes.5 Taking into account the variations in ECG, frequent premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) defined as more than 30 times in any 1 hour during the study or multifocal/polymorphic PVCs were considered abnormal for ventricular complexes.10
Wide complex tachyarrhythmias can be a real diagnostic challenge [1].
Initially, patients were included if they presented with "tachydysrhythmia associated with symptoms requiring cardioversion (unstable tachydysrhythmia with palpable pulse regarding patient conditions)." This criterion may include both ventricular and supraventricular tachyarrhythmias. Unfortunately, the authors did not present neither the diagnosis of the tachyarrhythmias nor the underlying heart disease of the patients treated.

"This large-scale trial is the first of its kind to evaluate an antibacterial envelope in cardiac device patients who are at risk for infections," said Bruce Wilkoff, M.D., director of Cardiac Pacing and Tachyarrhythmia Devices at the Cleveland Clinic, principal investigator in the trial and a paid consultant for Medtronic who serves on several Medtronic advisory boards and also receives royalty payments from Medtronic for technology he developed.
Since nearly 25 percent of pacemaker patients suffer from AF, a type of atrial tachyarrhythmia that can be difficult to detect due to its silent nature, continuous and reliable monitoring is crucial.
Arrhythmia, rarer in children, manifests as ventricular tachyarrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, left bundle branch block, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, complete heart block and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome.
