In brief: Upper heart chambers

Fast heart beat due to mechanism arising from the upper chamber of the heart is known as supraventricular tachycardia.
It could be due to electrical reentry (think of it as a short circuit) or increased automaticity (electrically hyperactive cells). It is amenable to treatment in most cases.
