ABSTRACT
These days, the frequency of electrical injuries is increasing with the increased spread of electricity use. Electrical injuries cause various complications, ranging from a local superficial skin injury to extensive internal organ damage, including essential vital organs, such as the cardiovascular or central nervous system. We encountered the patient who collapsed after an electrical injury on the scene and was resuscitated successfully after the prehospital early recognition of ventricular fibrillation, and rapid defibrillation, followed by post cardiac arrest care in the hospital. Prehospital early electrocardiogram monitoring and defibrillation may be needed in electrical injured patients.
Key words: Cardiac arrest, Electric injuries, Ventricular fibrillation
