A sustained VT is a ventricular rhythm with a frequency of more than 100 beats per minute that usually lasts at least 30 seconds or must be terminated earlier due to hemodynamic instability.
We see here a wide complex tachycardia with a frequency of approx. 105-110 beats per minute that lasts for a good minute. It begins with a premature QRS complex without a premature P wave. The short VT after the end of the sustained ventricular tachycardia with the same QRS morphology also indicates a ventricular origin of this arrhythmia.

I have posted this arrhythmia as a teaching example, as I do not believe that many people have a corresponding example ECG
