  • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia
    This causes between 140 and 200 beats per minute, occur suddenly and similarly on.
  • Atrial flutter
    The Atria contract between 240 and 300 beats per minute, these movements are not reflected in the pulse, since not all produce a movement or contraction of the ventricles.
  • Ventricula tachycardia
    This is a rather serious arrhythmia, which got its start in the ventricles. Heart rate ranges between 150 and 250.
