A fibrillation can be described as muscular twitching involving individual muscle fibres acting without coordination. In the heart this is caused by the electrical charges that make the heartbeat become irregular and rapid. If untreated, fibrillation can lead to cardiac arrest, also known as myocardial infarction, and death.
The defibrillator, if used as soon as possible, is an effective means of neutralising the fibrillation.

Countless lives have been saved because of defibrillators.
