Time-related course was studied of structural changes in the lung tissue in acute myocardial infarction having developed in the wake of secondary ventricular fibrillation, using investigational methods common in biology, histochemistry, and electron-microscopy. It has been found out that development in patients with acute myocardial infarction of ventricular fibrillation greatly aggravates the course of the illness inducing origination of profound and even irreversible alternative changes in all constituents of the aerohematic barrier. The above patients developed structural as well as functional pulmonary insufficiency which is at its greatest within 2 to 4 days of the onset of ventricular fibrillation.

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
