    V-tach - the hearts contraction starts at the ventricles. It has a very distinctive ECG.

    Wolff-parkinson-white syndrome - It's an abnormally fast beat, the origination of the electrical impulse is not identified. The patient will still have a normal PQRST in an ECG with the presence of delta waves and a much shorter PR intervals.
