One would have noticed medical staff and trained health professionals using a machine to restore the normal condition and functioning of a person’s heart in the scenario of a cardiac arrest. The equipment is referred to as a defibrillator machine, which are devices used to restore the normal heartbeat by sending an electric pulse or shock to the heart. Other purposes of the defibrillator device are to correct an uneven heartbeat and also when there is a variation in the heartbeat causing it to be either too slow or too fast. Defibrillator machines are of multiple types, include both external and internal variants and are meant for different conditions related to the heart.
One type is the automated external defibrillator used in case of emergencies like cardiac arrest. The device is kept for use at public places to handle critical scenarios and can be operated by normal people who possess the knowledge for the same to save the lives of people facing sudden cardiac arrest. An alternate option would be to seek the help of healthcare workers, medical staff and other qualified professionals around who can assist in the immediate usage based on need.
The operation of an external defibrillator is usually taught in workshops and sessions related to first aid, immediate medical response and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Automatic external defibrillators (AED) are usually available as a kit with multiple items like shields, gloves etc that are required as part of the operation or when providing assistance to a person experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. Sticky pads with sensors are attached to the chest of the person experiencing a cardiac arrest and information about the person’s heart rhythm can be viewed through the display or computer in the AED device.
Other variants of defibrillator machines are:
Implantable defibrillators that are surgically placed inside the body to prevent sudden complications related to the heart for people who are suffering from serious cardiac problems
