DEFIBRILLATOR & PACEMAKER
Defibrillator is a device that delivers a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the affected heart.
This depolarizes a critical mass of the heart muscle and allows normal sinus rhythm to be reestablished by the body’s natural pacemaker of the heart.
It is a medical device which uses electrical impulses, delivered by electrodes contacting the heart muscles, to regulate the beating of the heart.
