Pulseless ventricular tachycardia should be treated as ventricular fibrillation.

Ventricular tachycardia with a pulse is classified as stable or unstable, based on the respective absence or presence of symptoms in the patient.

Unstable ventricular tachycardia may be defined by one or more of the following adverse signs:

  • systolic blood pressure less than 90 mm Hg
  • pulse rate greater than 150 beats per minute
  • chest pain
  • evidence of heart failure
