V tach is identified by: wide QRS complexes (>.12 seconds), rate faster than 100 bpm. In MONOMORPHIC V tach, all QRS complexes look alike. There are other mechanisms of wide-complex tachycardia, but they can be difficult to differentiate from a single rhythm strip. All WCT should be treated as V tach until proven otherwise.
