Question
Hello Dr,

I'm not a student and its for sure not a H.W question, not sure why you got idea that I'm a student. I'm a Healthcare Professional working for State Department of Health Services, Texas. I'm presenting my data findings to the staff but had this question which I couldnt find answer on google or any PUBMED journal and posted here hoping to find answer.

Thanks for looking into it.

Answer
Hi Sammera,
You should still do your homework. Re: ventricular rates of 25 or 225, they are called bradycardia and tachycardia resp.
A rate of 25 occurs with total heart block and is a medical emergency, requiring urgent treatment just like ventricular tachycardia. You should be able to research the rest! Here is a start:
