In 56 patients, frequency analysis of the electrocardiogram of ventricular fibrillation exhibited power spectra with a distinct dominant frequency. The greatest success for resuscitation from ventricular fibrillation is recorded when ventricular fibrillation develops after the patient comes under coronary care. Of the 41 patients in whom the onset and first 8 s of ventricular fibrillation were artefact-free the mean dominant frequency of primary ventricular fibrillation (no cardiogenic shock or… CONTINUE READING
