Ventricular fibrillation: New measuring method gives hope

Dear Sir or Madam,

If the heart beats so fast that it causes a lack of proper blood flow and the heart stops, we speak of ventricular fibrillation – a condition that is life-threatening and can lead to irreparable brain damage. Researchers from Göttingen are looking for the causes of ventricular fibrillation using ultrasound in order to develop new therapeutic options. See more in our video.

Have a sunny week,

Ventricular fibrillation is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the heart muscle exhibits a rapid, erratic beat. The cause might be a circulatory system disease or heart attack. Researchers in Göttingen are now developing an ultrasound technique to get to the bottom of ventricular fibrillation and cardiac arrhythmias and facilitate better treatment options.
