Is it possible that ventricular tachycardia has been induced by a large chest thump? I don’t understand this very well. I would like some explanation.

I did some research for you and it appears that chest thump is accepted as a simple and effective maneuver for terminating a paroxysm of ventricular tachycardia. I read about the case where patient received digitalis in which chest thump caused an acceleration of the rate of ventricular tachycardia. I really don’t have any details. Maybe you should consult some cardiologist.
