I had a run of irregular heart beats, Is this considered V-tach ?

I had a run of irregular heart beats for roughly seven seconds yesterday. Just walking down the stairs. Over the past ten years, I have had a holter, stress test, and echo with no heart problems (slight leaky valve but still considered normal). Is this considered V-tach ?

Hi. Welcome To Healthcaremagic

Because the previous work up was normal, I don't think it is V tach. VTach will cause symptoms like diziiness. Even though the Holter might not have catched your irregular heart beats, you can get the Electrophysiology study (EPS) to look exactly if there are any abnormalities in the conduction system.
