    Paroxysmal tachycardia
Approximate Synonyms
  • Nonsustained paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia
  • Paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia
  • Sustained ventricular tachycardia
  • Torsades de pointes
  • Torsades type ventricular tachycardia
  • Ventricular tachycardia, monomorphic
  • Ventricular tachycardia, nonsustained
  • Ventricular tachycardia, paroxysmal
  • Ventricular tachycardia, polymorphic
  • Ventricular tachycardia, sustained
Clinical Information
  • A cardiac rhythm characterized by 3 or more consecutive complexes in duration emanating from the ventricles at a rate of >100 bpm (cycle length: <600 ms).
  • A disorder characterized by a dysrhythmia with a heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute that originates distal to the bundle of his.
  • A tachycardia arising distal to bundle of his, with a rate greater than 100 beats per minute.
  • An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm usually in excess of 150 beats per minute. It is generated within the ventricle below the bundle of his, either as autonomic impulse formation or reentrant impulse conduction. Depending on the etiology, onset of ventricular tachycardia can be paroxysmal (sudden) or nonparoxysmal, its wide qrs complexes can be uniform or polymorphic, and the ventricular beating may be independent of the atrial beating (av dissociation).
  • An abnormally rapid ventricular rhythm with aberrant ventricular excitation, usually in excess of 150 beats per minute.
ICD-10-CM I47.2 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v37.0):
  • 308 Cardiac arrhythmia and conduction disorders with mcc
  • 309 Cardiac arrhythmia and conduction disorders with cc
  • 310 Cardiac arrhythmia and conduction disorders without cc/mcc
  • 791 Prematurity with major problems
  • 793 Full term neonate with major problems
