It's VT,if pt is stable give inj amiodarone 150 mg iv stat,then inj amiodarone 1mg/kh for 18 hrs then inj amiodarone .5mg/h for 6 hrs.if unstable vitals then give synchronised DC shock

Ventricular tachycardia

Monomorphic VT Cardioversion suggested , followed by amiadorone infusion. Electrolyte check.

It is VT. Action should be taken fast.first try with iv amiadrone bolus Put her on iv infusion of amiadrone If not reverted go for DC shock.once sinus rhythm is regained pl get 2d echo done. Cardiac enzymes also to be done
