Ventricular Tachycardia is a dangerous arrhythmia where the ventricles beat so rapidly that no effective cardiac pumping occurs. 

 

This rapid beating may lead to  sudden death and a high energy shock needs to be administered to save the patient’s life. When repeated episodes of this rhythm occur it is medically termed as Storm of ventricular tachycardia. This is a life threatening condition which occurs in 10- 155 of patients who have a heart attack before and carries a mortality of 80%.
