Code blue: Defibrillation

Defibrillation is defined as the process wherein an electric shock is sent to the heart to stop an arrhythmia with the use of an electrical device called a defibrillator, resulting in the return of a productive heart rhythm.

Defibrillation is often used in emergency cases for the purpose of correcting life-threatening arrhythmias such as countering the onset of ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia, which is a common cause of/ and cardiac arrest.
