Is sudden Vtach and then to pulseless vfib randomly in the night of day common? No pvc's during the day, electrolytes within range. Bilat chest tubes d/t bilat pneumo's. s/p cabg several weeks. vitals within normal limits all shift. Probably from some type of resp failure caused vtach/vfib. Has this happened to anyone? no warnings and just bam!

What is his RV function like? Was it distended. Was he fluid overloaded?
Most respiratory arrests I have seen were either bradycardic arrests or asystolic arrests.
