Do you know if ventricular fibrillation is the most common rhythm during cardiac arrest?

In brief: No.

The initial rhythm causing a cardiac arrest is most usually monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (62%), followed by bradycardia (17%), then polymorphic VT (13%) and finally primary vf (8%).
Most of these rhythms will eventually degenerate into vf, however.
