'Ventricular Fibrillation'

  • Comment

A 65 year-old patient was admitted to the hospital after several days of emesis.

Shortly after admission, the patient developed an acute arrhythmia which resolved after three rounds of CPR and one shock.

This is ventricular fibrillation, determined by the absence of identifiable P waves, QRS complexes, or T waves, and the irregular deflections of varying amplitude.

See more cases like this on Figure 1.
