Ventricular fibrillation is a heart condition which consists of a lack of
coordination of the contraction of the muscle tissue of the large chambers of
the heart. The ventricular muscle twitches randomly, because the contraction of
the muscle cells is not synchronized and as a result the ventricles fail to pump
blood into the arteries.
