Cardiology


Atrial Fibrillation: when the small chambers of the heart, where the electrical impulse for heartbeats should originate, succumb to spasms. Often benign if treated with medication.

AFib:

Ventricular fibrillation: when the major chambers of the heart spasm, failing to produce sustainable beats, and threatening to exhaust themselves in flat line. Potentially lethal. Bring out the paddles.

VFib:

British Fibrillation: When the English political system becomes spasmodic, and unable to produce consistent or sustainable results about much of anything.

Cause: some say Monty Python, others Martin Amis. Still others give a nod to "Gulliver’s Travels."
