OBJECTIVE To investigate out-of-hospital ventricular tachycardia (VT) cardiac arrest patients, comparing the prevalences and outcomes of the following VT subtypes among this population: monomorphic VT (MVT), polymorphic VT (PVT), and torsades de pointes (TdP, PVT with a prolonged QT interval). METHODS This was a retrospective review from a fire department-based paramedic system of nontraumatic VT cardiac arrest patients (January 1991 to December 1994) with a supraventricular perfusing rhythm… CONTINUE READING
