Defibrillators installed in ITER buildings

A controlled shock within five minutes of collapse provides a good chance for recovery.
When someone has a cardiac arrest, defibrillation needs to be prompt. For every minute that passes chance of survival decreases by 14 percent. Research shows that applying a controlled shock within five minutes of collapse provides the best possible outcome. A defibrillator is a machine that can restart the heart by giving an electric shock as in case of cardiac arrest. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a type of defibrillator that detects the electrical activity in the heart and gives automated instructions to the rescuer on what to do. Defibrillators must be deployed strategically in areas of greatest need. ITER has recently acquired two AED. They are located on the ground floors in 519 and Headquarters.
