What is Ventricular fibrillation?
Those who have had heart problems in the past are more likely to receive this disease.
Symptoms of Ventricular Fibrillation
- Chest pain
- Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia)
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of consciousness
How is Ventricular Fibrillation Diagnosed?
Checking the pulse of the victim can diagnose this disease because in ventricular fibrillation there is no pulse.
How Ventricular Fibrillation is treated?
The purpose of CPR is to deliver oxygenated blood from the brain and the heart.
A defibrillator shocks the heart to reset the rhythm.
Those who survive with this disease may have lifelong damage.
