Defibrillation :- Defibrillators are machines that restore natural heartbeat by transmitting to the heart an electrical pulse or shock. These are used to avoid or correct an arrhythmia, an erratic or too slow or too fast heartbeat. If the heart suddenly stops, defibrillators can also restart the rhythm of the heart.
Various types of defibrillators function in various ways. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) were designed to save the lives of people suffering sudden cardiac arrest in many public spaces. Such apps can be used in an emergency even by untrained spectators.
Other defibrillators can prevent sudden death among individuals with a high risk of life-threatening arrhythmia. They include implantable cardioverter defibrillators, which are placed in your body surgically, and wearable cardioverter defibrillators, which rest on the body.
To get used to living with a defibrillator can take time and effort, and it is important to be aware of potential risks and complications.
