Uses of Defibrillator:
Defibrillation is usually a crucial procedure in cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).CPR can be described as an algorithmic treatment that aims to restore pulmonary and cardiac function. The use of defibrillation is recommended only in specific types of cardiac dysrhythmias. These include ventricular fibrillation (VF) and Pulseless ventricular Tachycardia. If the heart is completely stopped, such as an asystole, or in a pulseless electrical activity (PEA) the procedure is not recommended. Defibrillation is not recommended when the patient is awake or is experiencing an electrical pulse. Incorrectly administered electrical shocks could create dangerous dysrhythmias including ventricular fibrillation.
Method of application
The defibrillation equipment which is typically available outside of medical facilities can be found in the automated external defibrillator (AED) A machine that is able to be used by those who have not had any prior knowledge. This is because the machine can record pre-recorded instructions that direct the user, and then automatically assesses the condition of the patient and delivers the proper electrical shocks. Additionally, there are written instructions for defibrillators which provide step-by-step instructions for the procedure.
The survival rates for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests are not great typically less than 10 percent. In-hospital cardiac arrests’ outcomes are better with 20 percent. Within the population who suffer from cardiac arrest, the specific rhythm of the heart can dramatically affect the survival rate. As opposed to those with a non shockable rhythm (such as PEA or asystole) those who have a rhythm that is shockable (such as the VF or pulseless ventricular tachycardia) have higher survival rates of between 21 and 50 percent.
1. What are the 3 types of defibrillator?
Ans: An AED is a portable device that checks and sends a shock to the heart to restore normal rate. 2. ICDs are placed through surgery in the chest or stomach area, where the device delivers shock when needed.. 3. WCDs have sensors that attach to the skin. They are connected by wires to a wearable unit that delivers shocks when needed.
2. Is a defibrillator the same as CPR?
Ans: No. CPR is used to maintain blood flow and the Defibrillator is used to maintain natural heart rhythm preventing brain damage and death.
