Defibrillation: A Shocking Update

An important review of the literature on defibrillation for ventricular fibrillation has just been published in the September 19th issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Graham Nichol, MD, MPH, and colleagues at the University of Washington summarize the state-of-the-art related to defibrillation in treating sudden cardiac arrest. Topics include a brief history of the evolution of defibrillation, technical characteristics of modern automated external defibrillators (AEDs), strategies to improve AED access and increase survival, ancillary treatments, and use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and wearable cardioverter defibrillators (WCDs).
