There are many: causes of atrial tachycardia in a young person but most likely this is a physiological response to some form of stimulation. Anxiety, excitement, dehydration, fever can all be associated with this. The aberrant conduction is a reflection of normal physiology if the heart rate is fast enough or could represent a minor abnormality of the conduction system.
