Hello! Welcome to @PhysioMedics. In this animation video tutorial, we are going to discuss about Ventricular Fibrillation ECG and V Fib treatment.

Ventricular Fibrillation Definition:
Ventricular fibrillation, or V-fib, is considered the most serious cardiac rhythm disturbance. Ventricular fibrillation (V-fib) is a dangerous type of arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat. It affects your heart's ventricles.

Disordered electrical activity causes the heart’s lower chambers (ventricles) to quiver, or fibrillate, instead of contracting (or beating) normally. This prohibits the heart from pumping blood, causing collapse and cardiac arrest.

This type of arrhythmia is a medical emergency. It’s life-threatening.

Coarse ventricular fibrillation: When the fibrillation is strong, the peaks are taller and the valleys are deeper. It's called “coarse” because the line is anything but smooth. Fine ventricular fibrillation: When the peaks and valleys are short and shallow, this is called fine ventricular fibrillation.

Ventricular Fibrillation Causes:

V-fib can have several root causes, including:

Insufficient blood flow to the heart muscle
Damage to the heart muscle (from a heart attack, for example)
Cardiomyopathy
Problems with the aorta
Drug toxicity
Sepsis (severe body infection)

Ventricular Fibrillation Symptoms:
Ventricular fibrillation can cause sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), which requires immediate medical attention. Signs of cardiac arrest include:

Loss of responsiveness (no response to tapping on the shoulders)
No normal breathing (the victim is not breathing or is only gasping)

Ventricular Fibrillation Treatment:
In targeted ventricular fibrillation ablation, the patient is put under general anesthesia and the defibrillators which prevent them from going into VF are turned off. Doctors then use an electrocardiogram to make a computerized map of the heart's own voltage.
