Ventricular Tachycardia

Been away for a bit because of the heart rhythm you see above.
No, it wasn't mine, it was worse...it was my Dad's.
There are few things more unsettling than treating one of your own, and I'm still a little shaky over this one.
But...the medics who took over were outstanding as was the Cardiology staff in the hospital, so... I'm VERY happy to say that Dad is fine now and a proud new recipient of an internal defibrillator.
I should be back to blogging soon and my next post will probably be on the need for AED's,(Automatic External Defibrillators,) in every school, plane, school bus and a thousand other places I can't think of at the moment. They really DO save lives!
