Introduction:

The electrocardiogram (ECG) is the graphical representation of a patient’s heart rate that records the electrical signals of the heart. It contains wave components, such as P, Q, R, S, T, and U, which are present in the wave. The ECG interpretation is done when a patient is in serious condition.

Explanation

Ventricular tachycardia is a condition where the ventricles part of the heart shows an increase in electrical signals. This abnormal increase in the heart rate at ventricles can lead to ventricular fibrillation. It usually subsides within a few seconds, but, if it occurs for a longer period, this condition may lead to coronary heart diseases.

QRS duration: The duration of the QRS complex is around 0.12 seconds.

QT duration: It is more than 0.20 seconds...
