When death occurs at this time, it is suggested that it is due to dysrhythmia. It has been generally assumed that the majority of early deaths are due to ventricular fibrillation and this is being increasingly substantiated by experience on mobile coronary care units (21). Lawrie, in 1968 (13), reported from Edinburgh that 60 percent of the episodes of ventricular fibrillation in coronary care units occurred within 4 hours after the onset of symptoms and 80 percent within 12 hours. It is probable that the highest incidence of ventricular fibrillation occurs immediately after the onset of myocardial infarction; thereafter the incidence declines rapidly.
