Is there a cure for ventricular fibrillation?

I do not think so. Absolutely not. This is the most dangerous arrhythmia one can have because it can quickly deteriorate to asystole. V-fib is a shockable rhythm and a victim will most likely be pulseless. It must be treated with defibrillation, cpr, epinephrine/vasopressin, amiodarone, Lidocaine and/or magnesium. It's not something you can treat at home with a cup of herbal tea. And anyway, you'd be unconscious.

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?

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...

What kind of ventricular fibrillation is not dangerous?

None. Ventricular fibrillation is a condition in which there is uncoordinated contraction of the cardiac muscle of the ventricles in the heart, making them quiver rather than contract properly. Ventricular fibrillation is a medical emergency and a commonly identified arrythmia in cardiac arrest patients. Ventricular fibrillation is a medical emergency that requires prompt emergency intervention. Read more...
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.
