A contact with an electrical device (e.g., an electrical appliance not correctly connected to ground, such as a washing machine or a refrigerator) can cause a serious passage of current inside the human body at power line frequency (5060 Hz) that can interfere with the intracardiac electrograms (EGM) and simulate an episode of VF.
