Defibrillator Locations

A defibrillator is a treatment for cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (VT). A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart so the body's natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm.
