Defibrillators can restore a standard heartbeat by sending an electrical pulse or shock to the guts. They’re used to stop or right a heartbeat that’s uneven, too gradual or too quick. Defibrillators may also restore the guts’s beating if it all of the sudden stops.
If a defibrillator is used and efficient CPR is carried out inside three to 5 minutes of cardiac arrest, the prospect of survival will increase from 6 per cent to 74 per cent.
