The importance of semi-automatic defibrillators (DESA)
It is an electronic device, in this case portable, that diagnoses and treats a cardiorespiratory arrest when it is caused by fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia (there is electrical activity in the heart, but without mechanical affectivity or with inefficient pumping).
Thanks to an electric shock managed by DESA, an effective heart rate can be restored electrically and mechanically.
