Precisely differentiating supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) from ventricular tachycardia (VT) is paramount for optimal therapeutic management. This critical distinction often hinges on the meticulous application of validated diagnostic algorithms. Over time, diverse groups have devised numerous algorithms, each striving for improved specificity, sensitivity, and reduced complexity. To facilitate differentiation, we provide a concise overview of these algorithms within this document.
