Ventricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death can be a complication of a number of diseases. They can occur in people without previously identified diseases of the heart and blood vessels. In the video we will analyze in detail the origin (etiology), mechanisms for the development of heart rhythm disturbance and its work.
The cardiac muscle contains the so-called conduction system, thanks to which an electrical impulse normally propagates through the organ and the heart contracts at a frequency of 60–90 times per minute. In this case, the atria contract first, and then the ventricles. This rhythm is called sinus.
