Sinus tachy: sinus tachycardia does not lead to PVC or other unusual arrhythmias. However sinus tachycardia, although most of the time healthy response, sometimes there are reasons to have inappropriate sinus tachycardia or other causes such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. If sinus tachycardia is the dominant rhythm during day time, it needs evaluation by an electrophysiologist.
