Dr. Michael Fenster answered

Ventricular fib: Atrial fibrillation (af) in rare instances can be a life threatening condition. However, many thousands of people each day remain in af without any limitations as long as their symptoms and risks are addressed. Ventricular fibrillation (vf) on the other hand if not treated immediately (usually by elecetrical defibrillation) is almost always uniformly fatal.
