Defibrillation is a common treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias and ventricular fibrillation. Defibrillation consists of delivering a therapeutic dose of electrical current to the heart with a device called a defibrillator. This depolarizes a critical mass of the heart muscle, terminates the dysrhythmia and allows normal sinus rhythm to be reestablished by the body’s natural pacemaker, in the sinoatrial node of the heart. Defibrillators can be external, transvenous, or implanted (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator), depending on the type of device used or needed. Some external units, known as automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are used to automate the diagnosis of treatable rhythms. At present, with the advanced versions of defibrillators such as implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), wearable defibrillators and automated external defibrillators the survival rate of patients in out-of-home settings have improved significantly across the globe.
