    It means a series of ventricular beats - usually at least three, but not enough to be formally identified as V-Tach.  Technically, there is no such thing, and anything more than two consecutive PVCs is V-Tach.

    But the term is still used.

    V-run = ventricular run.  A series of beats that originate from the ventricles i.e. v-tach or non-sustained v-tach (NSVT).

    The ventrical is supposed to fire based on a signal from the atrium. The v-run is a series of premature ventricular contractions occurring without regard to the signal from the atrium.
