Welcome to the lesson on ventricular fibrillation and pulse ventricular tachycardia. In this video, we'll discuss recognizing ventricular fibrillation or Vf and pulses ventricular tachycardia, or vt, bf and pulseless, ventricular tachycardia, or vt, or life threatening cardiac rhythms that result in ineffective ventricular contractions. Vf is a rapid quivering of the ventricles instead of a forceful contraction. The ventricular motion of Vf is not synchronized with atrial contractions. pulses vt occurs when the rapidly contracting ventricles are not pumping blood sufficiently to create a palpable pulse. In both Vf and pulses vt individuals are not receiving adequate perfusion, bf and pulses vt or shockable rhythms.
This concludes our lesson on ventricular fibrillation and pulse ventricular tachycardia. Next, we'll review responding to cardiac arrest.
