Chapter Eight. tacky hearty welcome to the lesson on recognizing tachycardia. In this video, we'll discuss what taca cardia means, how to recognize it, and kinds of tacky hearty. tacky cardia is defined as a heart rate greater than what is considered normal for a child's age. Like Braddock, cardio, attacking cardio can be life threatening if it compromises the hearts ability to perfuse effectively. When the heartbeats too quickly, there is a shortened relaxation face, which causes two main problems, the ventricles are unable to feel completely, so cardiac output is lowered, and the coronary arteries received less blood supply to the heart is decreased.
Signs and symptoms of tacky cardio respiratory distress or failure for tissue perfusion for example, low urine output, altered mental state, pulmonary edema or congestion and weak rapid pulse. There are several kinds of tacky cardia that can be difficult to differentiate in children on ECG, two to their elevated heart Read. The following is a list of the kinds of tachycardia and what happens during the specific tachycardic event. sinus tachycardia normal rhythm with fast rate is likely non dangerous and commonly occurs during stress or fever. Super ventricular tachycardia rhythm starts above the ventricles. Atrial Fibrillation causes a regularly irregular heart rhythm.
Atrial flutter causes a sawtooth pattern on ECG, ventricular tachycardia, rhythm starts in the ventricles. This concludes our lesson on recognizing tachycardia. Next review narrow QRS complex
