In Hospital Ventricular Fibrillation

The quiz
You are working in the radiology department as a registered nurse. A panicked secretary calls you to the waiting room where you arrive to find a middle-aged man lying supine on the floor. He appears cyanotic. His wife tells you that they were talking and he suddenly got a funny look on his face and collapsed. He is a diabetic but has no other medical conditions. He was here to have a painful ankle imaged. You instruct the secretary to call for the cardiac arrest team and to send the x-ray technician to retrieve the department defibrillator.
