What does it mean when your heart is going into vtac?

ur ventricles are working really fast and your heartbeat will be very high......

The One
Ventricular tachycardia. It's when your heart rate goes way up.

I would like to comment on joes comment. atrioventricular disassociation was the old term for 3rd degree heart block or complete heart block, not ventricular tachycardia. VT is caused be an irritable foci in the ventricules that is causing the rapid heart rate and the fibrillation threshold is very low. The intrinsic rate for the ventricles, is 30-40 bpm. AV disassociation( 3rd degree ) has an atrial rate that is normal and a ventricle rate that is normal. There is no P-wave relationship with the QRS. This patient needs a pacer and a person with VT requires oxygen, IV meds and probable sync cardioversion and in the case of pulseless VT - defibrillation and CPR as per ACLS Protocol.

Andrew C
it means that your ventricals are beating very fast without syncronizing with you atria. in fact your atrium are not beating at all and if sustained it can be fatal

Just to clarify, for anyone interested, during ventricular tachycardia, the upper chambers or atria are attempting to contract. This can be seen on ECG's and in fact is a hallmark of ventricular tachycardia - atrioventricular dissociation. Furthermore, there can be occasional beats that are appropriately conducted from the atria to the ventricles in the form of fusion or capture beats, other tell-tale signs of ventricular tachycardia.
