- Differential Diagnosis
- Try building your search one term at a time, and be as specific as you can! Search term example: "chronic cough".
- Do not enter multiple findings such as "anemia, chronic cough, weight loss, vomiting" all at the same time.
- After selecting your term from the search results a list of possible diagnoses will be generated. If the list is too long, you will be able to narrow it down by entering additional terms.
- Do not enter values such as "heart rhythm 110" or "sodium 125", instead use "tachycardia" or "hyponatremia".

Paroxysmal Ventricular Tachycardia is sudden rapid ventricular pacing that occurs due to a number of factors. This may happen when there is pronounced hypoxic conditions resulting into poor heart oxygenation. Paroxysmal Ventricular Tachycardia also popularly called Ventricular Tachycardia is abbreviated as VT. VT is a serious condition that requires urgent intervention. The ventricles contract at a rate that may range anywhere between 125 to 250 and this will compromise an already sick heart.
It can and will lead to fibrillation and death if untreated or does not spontaneously resolve .
