The shock that saves lives

Local law enforcement agencies benefit from $10.1 million grant to purchase Automatic External Defibrillators

IOWA CITY– A defibrillator is a device administering an electrical shock to the heart in an attempt to correct a life-threatening chaotic rhythm called ventricular fibrillation, or V-Fib. In this condition, the heart muscle quivers erratically, but does not pump blood. Essentially, without a heartbeat, the person is dead. The defibrillator’s shock literally jolts the heart, stopping it completely for an instant, in the hope natural pacemakers will kick in again in a normal, life-sustaining rhythm restoring heartbeat and breathing.
