Trying to understand EKG reading.

I felt very dizzy, was going to pass out. I called 911. My heart rate felt fast.
The current loop recorder tracing description was ‘inappropriate tachycardia’  and listed one ‘tachycardia events  - 1’
My cardiologist is saying that there were no tachycardia  events, and no Tachy artifact on the loop recording.
I am not following, why would there be no events or artifact , given the above EKG description?
I believe my Tachy settings are over 190bpm  And under 40 bpm
He has offered to lower the setting.
