Chain 3 of Survival
A strong Chain of Survival can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of heart attack, stroke and other emergencies.
Link 3: Rapid Defibrillation
Defibrillation is a process in which an electronic device gives an electric shock to the heart. This helps reestablish normal contraction rhythms in a heart having dangerous arrhythmia or in cardiac arrest. In recent years small portable defibrillators have become available. These are called automated external defibrillators or AEDs.
