Growth Of Medical Sciences For Saving Life Of People Of Twenty First Century

September 18, 2017

Advancement of medical science is bringing in many life saving devices. Have you ever heard of defibrillator? What actually this device is used for?

Defibrillator is a life saving device for the people with sudden cardiac arrest. Many a time many people suffer from very fast heartbeat. This condition is known as arrhythmic. It shuts down the entire system of the body. Organs and veins don’t get enough blood, which leads to absence of oxygen.  Over the aware of the person, our heart can behave abnormally and need immediate treatment. With the defibrillator, electrical pulses are sent to the heart to bring it back to normal condition. Thus this saves a life from a sudden death.

Know about the defibrillator for saving life

When a defibrillateur passes the electrical shock to the heart it actually slows down the beats. Thus with the normal heart beat, the oxygen passage gets normal too. In many cases, a defibrillator needs to pass several shocks that can be required for massive heart attack.

Different defibrillator for different patients

But how to get the immediate treatment? Defibrillateur is basically of two types. One is the internal defibrillator which is being surgically placed inside the person’s body. Another one is the external defibrillator which is being used only externally. Though the function of both of them is similar, yet they have some basic difference.

Know the functionalities before using them

External defibrillateur are being used for sudden unexpected attacks. Government has ordered to keep it available at many important places. They are also available in public places, like schools, colleges, malls, market, etc. They can also be kept at home but enough people should know the use.

Whereas on other hand the heart patients should have the defibrillator surgically put inside the body. This would surely help to save the life of the person. Thus both kinds of defibrillators are life saving devices in modern days.
