Defibrillator is an easy-to-use device that delivers an electric shock to the
heart of a patient when they have had a cardiac arrest.
arrest is when the heart stops pumping blood around the body, which is often
caused by an electrical problem with the heart. A defibrillator can shock the
heart back into a normal rhythm.

life saving equipment will be available at any time of day or night. Every
second counts when someone is having a cardiac arrest. Survival rates are
extremely poor at only 3% but when a defibrillator is used, rates can increase to
up to 50% so timely intervention is essential.
