Defibrillators - How They Work
There are three types of defibrillators: automated external defibrillators (AEDs), implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and wearable cardioverter defibrillators (WCDs). Each type works by checking for arrhythmias, or irregular heart rhythms. Once detected, each defibrillator will send a shock to restore a normal rhythm.
