What is sinus tachycardia?

Sinus tachycardia is a heart rhythm with elevated rate of impulses originating from the sinoatrial node. The normal heart rate is considered to be 60 to 100 beats/min, with sinus tachycardia being defined as a sinus rhythm with a rate exceeding 100 beats/min. However, heart rate varies by age.
