What’s the importance of early defibrillation?
Defibrillation is a part of basic life support; it is a life saving action to enable normal cardiac operation, ending irregular vibrations on myocardium by giving electric current to heart through defibrillator device. Defibrillation applied for 20-30 seconds in VF or VT without pulse, converts almost 100% of them to sinus rhythm. Each one-minute delay reduces chance of success by 10%. In case of a 10-minute delay, chance to survive is close to 0. With every minute from development of cardiac arrest with VF or VT without pulse, mortality increases by 7 / 10%. In case of later start of defibrillation, survival chance of patient decreases; and only one among 250 patients can be saved in average in the event of starting cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation after first 10 minutes.
