Defibrillation : concept & explanations

Made out of 2 independent parts, the heart assures a pumping function.
In order for the blood to circulate effectively through the body, the myocardium, the heart's muscular fiber, contracts according to electrical signals.

A sudden cardiac arrest can occur at any time and in most cases without prior warning.
During a cardiac arrest, the electrical pulses are disordered, no longer allow the heart to perform its pump function.

To restore this rhythm, a defibrillation is necessary. Also known as external electric shock, defibrillation is the medical act of passing a short circuit through the heart.
