Sustained VT lasts longer than 30 seconds and/or requires help for stopping or produces severe blood flow problems which can lead to fainting.

Long-term treatment may include oral antiarrythmic medication. However, these are frequently avoided because of severe side effects. Other long-term treatments include:

resynchronization therapy (CRT): a type of pacemaker implanted to regulate your heartbeat...
