How to tell difference bewtween svt or v tach?

I have been Dx with both... I have had the svt for years.. I only have mabe two episodes a year usually around 200bpm.. I can get them to stop usually within 30 minutes... My new V-Tach I was dx with this year bc I started haveing lots of skipped beats... After the moniter he dx the skipped beats as VT...

So VT is worse and Im just curious is ALL my skipped beat vtach or are some from svt.... Also when I do have an episode of rapid heart beat how am I to tell if its svt or vt...Im really confused about this?
