(VF)

In ventricular fibrillation (VF) leads to uncoordinated muscle fibrillation of the ventricles without effective contractions. Immediate loss of consciousness and death within minutes are the result. The therapy consists of a cardiopulmonary resuscitation with immediate defibrillation.

Ventricular fibrillation is caused by numerous small reentry waves of electrical activity and is reflected in the ECG as ultrafast waveforms to the baseline with different length and morphology (atrial fibrillation in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.).

The therapy consists of a cardiopulmonary resuscitation with immediate defibrillation. Ventricular fibrillation is caused by numerous small reentry waves of electrical activity and is reflected in the ECG as ultrafast waveforms to the baseline with different length and morphology (atrial fibrillation in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.). Ventricular fibrillation is evident in 70% of patients with cardiac arrest and is the terminal event in many diseases. In general, most patients present with a ventricular an underlying heart disease (typically ischemic cardiomyopathy, as well as hypertrophic or dilated cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia [ARVD] or Brugada syndrome). increase electrolyte imbalance, acidosis, hypoxemia or ischemia in all diseases the risk of ventricular fibrillation. Ventricular fibrillation is less common in infants and children. Here it is more likely due to a cardiac arrest to a cardiac arrest.
