Ventricular Fibrillation


Ventricular fibrillation (much different that atrial fibrillation) is an ominous rhythm in which there is no clear distinction between the various EKG complexes (P wave, QRS, T wave) and there are no effective cardiac contractions. The result is no cardiac output (blood flow) and no blood pressure. Immediate emergency medical attention is required.
