    Ventricular Fibrillation Question

    I thought this question was a bit perplexing given that the most correct answer available IMO was considered incorrect.

    At what current level does ventricular fibrillation occur?
    Your Answer: 17mA - 99mA

    This is the information listed on this site.

    "Ventricular fibrillation occurs with currents as low as 60-100 mA in AC systems. For DC, about 300 to 500 mA."

    There was an answer lower and then two higher than the answer I selected. My only assumption is that they might have been considering DC only.

    "Ventricular fibrillation occurs with currents as low as 60-100 mA in AC systems. For DC, about 300 to 500 mA." is what the site said ,but if you look on the chart it says heart gets hit at 100mA. I feel like your answer could be acceptable just not the one they wanted.
