Hospital defibrillation  

August 26, 2010 - Hospitals today are looking to provide defibrillators not only for their advanced medical staff, but also to put them at the fingertips of general floor and BLS-trained nurses in non-acute and general med-surg areas. This way, early defibrillation can be seconds away, no matter where you are in the hospital.
