Pulseless ventricular tachycardia may be symptomatic or asymptomatic. In a young patient with a family history of sudden death, immediate evaluation for an inherited ventricular syndrome is recommended. If symptomatic, the ventricular rate, duration of tachycardia, and the presence of underlying disease determine the kind of symptoms that present.


In young patients with a positive family history of sudden death, evaluation for inherited arrhythmia syndromes is warranted.[1] Inherited arrhythmia disorders include:
