Structural irregularities in buildings are categorised as: (i) Plan irregularities which refer to asymmetrical plan shapes (L, T, U, F) or discontinuities in the horizontal resting elements (diaphragms) such as: cut-outs, large openings, re-entrant corners and other abrupt changes resulting in torsion, diaphragm deformations and stress concentration, and (ii) Vertical irregularities which refers to sudden change in the strength, stiffness, geometry and mass, resulting in irregular distribution of forces and/or deformation over the height of the building [3].
PSVT comprises many types of arrhythmias, the most common ones being atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) and atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardia (AVRT) [2].
