This research study is being done to see whether general anesthesia (GA) affects our ability to start ventricular tachycardia (VT) during an VT ablation procedure. Data collected during this research study will help electrophysiologists and anesthesiologists to make the best decisions about the best anesthetic conditions to use to perform VT ablations. This research study is a "pilot" study. Pilot studies are done on a small group of subjects to learn if a larger study would be useful.


Inclusion Criteria: - Patients with VT and have an implanted ICD who are scheduled for VT catheter ablation. - Patients 18 years of age or older Exclusion Criteria: - Patients with difficult airway management or patients with contra/ relative contra indication for general anesthesia or known allergies to any of the proposed anesthetic agents - Women who are pregnant
