There are two types of Tachycardia, Atrial and Ventricular.

Atrial involves one or both of the upper chambers of the heart. Ventricular involves one or both lower chambers of the heart. Your heart has four chambers.

Of the two types, Ventricular is the more serious and may require the implant of a small device called a defibrillator.

Tachycardia is basically a very rapid heart rate (heartbeat).

For more information on Tachycardia, I suggest you visit the web site of The American Heart Association located at http://www.americanheart.org. Click on their Heart & Stroke A-Z Guide found on the left side of their home page. Then click on "T". Go down to Tachycardia. You will see the word "Arrhythmias" highlighted in red. Click on "Arrhythmias", and the article will fully explain Tachycardia. Tachycardia is one type of heart arrhythmia.
