In brief: Arythmia
Usually a terminal arrythmia related to metabolic status etc-hence the use of implanted diffibriltors.

In brief: Arrhythmias
Heart failure (CHF) is typically the result of progressive damage to the heart muscle- healthy muscle is replaced with scar tissue that not only does not contract or pump blood well but also is at risk to develop dangerous arrhythmias.
