Ventricular Flutter

About

  • Ventricular flutter appears on the ECG as a sine wave pattern that is characterised by regular, large oscillations. Ventricular flutter is extreme form of ventricular tachycardia (VT), with a loss of organised electrical activity, and is also associated with rapid and profound hemodynamic compromise, usually short lived due to progression to ventricular fibrillation.

    Ventricular flutter appears on the ECG as a sine wave pattern that is characterised by regular, large oscillations. Ventricular flutter is extreme form of ventricular tachycardia (VT), with a loss of organised electrical activity, and is also associated with rapid and profound hemodynamic compromise, usually short lived due to progression to ventricular fibrillation.

    Both ventricular flutter and ventricular fibrillation generally result in loss of consciousness and are usually fatal within minutes unless intervention is successful.
