Tachycardia comes from the Greek words tachys (rapid or accelerated) and kardia (of the heart). Tachycardia typically refers to a heart rate that exceeds the normal range for a resting heartrate (heartrate in an inactive or sleeping individual). It can be dangerous depending on the speed and type of rhythm.

Yes, I got tachycardia correct. The word you are thinking of is dysrhythmia or arrhythmia.

Thanks, PF. It'll be easy to remember now with rhythm in both words. I can remember the Tachycardia by thinking of a tachometer.
