What kind of ventricular fibrillation is not dangerous?

What kind of ventricular fibrillation is not dangerous?

Ventricular fibrilla: Ventricular fibrillation means the heart is not mechanically contracting and thus isn't pumping blood. There is no kind of ventricular fibrillation that isn't life threatening unless it is the kind which is pseudovfib meaning it isn't really fibrillating, it just looks that way on the ecg. ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

What is the disease where ventricular fibrillation happens all the time or a lot of the time?

What is the disease where ventricular fibrillation happens all the time or a lot of the time?

V-fib???: V-fib that lasts more than a few seconds is typically lethal and results in sudden death. Atrial fibrillation (a-fib) is a different thing entirely, which is a common heart rhythm abnormality. Some people live in constant afib, some people their afib is come-and-go. If it is afib you are referring to, it is commonly managed with a combination of medications and procedures. ...Read more

What are the tests for ventricular fibrillation?

What are the tests for ventricular fibrillation?

Immediate ECG: Ventricular fibrillation is a potentially fatal heart arrhythmia which if not reversed back to a normal rhythm, can cause permanent stoppage of the heart. It always causes patients to lose conciousness and cause cardiovascular collapse. These patients need to have immediate confirmation of their rhythm disturbance and be defibrillated immediately to prevent death. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of ventricular fibrillation?

What are the symptoms of ventricular fibrillation?

Cardiac arrest: Ventricular fibrillation is a fatal arrhythmia that results in death unless reversed with defibrillation. The main symptoms are cardiovascular collapse with absence of blood pressure, pulselessness, and total unresponsiveness to any stimuli. ...Read more

Ventricular Fibrillation (Definition)

Ventricular fibrillation is a condition where there is an uncoordinated electrical stimulation to the ventricles of the heart, causing the muscles to contract individually rather than together as a group response. The heart is unable to pump ...Read more


Fibrillation (Definition)

Fibrillation is the rapid, irregular, and unsynchronized contraction of muscle fibers. An important occurrence is with ...Read more
