Definition

A generic expression for any tachycardia that originates above the BUNDLE OF HIS; Atrial or nodal zone source for tachycardia; narrow qrs rate 160 to 180 usually; slower with age and beta blocker but faster in young; perfectly regular rate is expected;varied block means digitalis toxicity but often no underlying organic heart disease; see paroxysmal varient which is likely more benign
