Synopsis

A rapid cardiac rhythm (greater than 100 beats per minute) generated within the atria by electrical reentry or automaticity, usually of sudden onset. The QRS may demonstrate a narrow QRS complex or a wide QRS complex if there is an underlying electrical conduction abnormality. Associated symptoms may include palpitations, dizziness, and syncope or near syncope.
