A.V. Moskalenko, the Chapter "Tachycardia as “Shadow Play”" (pp. 97-122)


Tachycardia is defined as a faster heart rhythm than normal sinus rhythm (with a rate of greater than 100 beats per minute in humans). Tachycardias can occur from different clinical backgrounds including congenital or acquired heart diseases, electrophysiological mechanisms and origins. The diagnosis of tachycardias is made by surface electrocardiograms and electrophysiological testing. The management and treatment of tachycardias including pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches are determined based on these factors. These concerns have been studied and the details have been increasingly recognized. In this book, internationally renowned authors have contributed chapters detailing these concerns of tachycardias from basic and clinical points of view and the chapters will lead to a further understanding and improvement in the clinical outcomes of tachycardias.
