Diagnostic criteria

  Wide QRS complex tachycardia.

 
Inferior axis in the frontal plane.

 
Left bundle branch block morphology with the precordial R/S transition region at or after lead V3.



In the absence of organic heart disease, the above findings suggest VT originating from the

right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT).

ECG 4. The ECG above belongs to a 45 years-old woman with a normal ECHOcardiogram.
Nonsustained VT attacks are seen.

Comment by Dr. Fred Kusumoto:

The PVCs come from the RVOT. Beautiful example of
AV dissociation.
