However,if VF is phase dependant like it is in animal models,then phase 2 VF would account for 87 % of VF related sudden cardiac deaths in humans. This would explain why most deaths (50-80 %) in the clinical setting occur within the first hours of the onset of myocardial ischemia. In every animal model examined to date ventricular fibrillation exhibits 2 phases.
