Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation  and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia . A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current which is also often called a countershock, to the heart. Although not fully understood, this would depolarize a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the dysrhythmia. Subsequently, the bodys natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm.

Defibrillators can be external, transvenous, or implanted (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator), depending on the type of device used or needed.

A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest.

Types of defibrillator:

·         Manual external defibrillator

·         Manual internal defibrillator

·         Automated external defibrillator

·         Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator

·         Wearable cardioverter defibrillator

·         Internal defibrillator

Cardiology research Journals like Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine (CCCM) provides a global open access platform to put forth the ongoing research, reviews articles related to Defibrillation process.
