Photo size: small | high
An ECG strip shows the presence of paroxysmal supraventricular (atrial) tachycardia, which is one type of rapid heartbeat. Paroxysmal supraventricular (atrial) tachycardia is indicated by a very rapid but otherwise normal ECG rhythm. A normal ECG strip is shown at the bottom for comparison.
