Image and definition of a defibrillator

A defibrillator is a medical device that delivers a dose of electric current to the heart. This depolarizes a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the dysrhythmia. Subsequently, the body’s natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm.
