Tachycardia — an abnormally fast heartbeat — is commonly associated with a variety of complications, including:
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a public health problem, accounting for 50% of cardiovascular deaths and 20% of all natural deaths in Western societies.3 Often confused with a Heart Attack, SCA is the sudden, abrupt loss of heart function generally caused by ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF). In approximately 94 to 95% of cases, sudden cardiac arrest is fatal, leading to sudden cardiac death.4
