Tachycardia is defined as a faster heart rhythm than normal sinus rhythm (with a rate 
of greater than 100 beats per minute in humans). Tachycardias can occur from 
different clinical backgrounds including congenital or acquired heart diseases, 
electrophysiological mechanisms and origins. The diagnosis of tachycardias is made 
by surface electrocardiograms and electrophysiological testing. The management and 
treatment of tachycardias including pharmacological and non-pharmacological 
approaches are determined based on these factors. These concerns have been studied 
and the details have been increasingly recognized. In this book, internationally 
renowned authors have contributed chapters detailing these concerns of tachycardias 
from basic and clinical points of view and the chapters will lead to a further 
understanding and improvement in the clinical outcomes of tachycardias.
