How to use the defibrillator

If you want to defibrillate your patient, select it on:

Interventions > Defibrillation > Biphasic defibrillator – sync OFF > *select joules*

After you see the defibrillator pads placed on the patient, click on the pink plus button to apply it.

Note: sometimes defibrillation is unavailable because you must undertake certain actions prior to defibrillating, like:

  • Positioning the patient correctly (laying them down), or
  • Removing the oxygen supply.
