Your question is confusing - PVC's, Vfib, ventricular bradycardia and Vtach are all types of idioventricular rhythms, right?

I guess I would think that the important things to know for Step 2 are:
  1. Reperfusion arrhythmias and hypertensive crisis can occur after tPA use
  2. The most common reperfusion arrhythmia is Afib
