I doubt it. But just in case of mass death and such:

How to Use a Defibrillator to Restore a Heartbeat

Defibrillation is the delivery of a powerful electrical shock to the heart. (The defibrillator is the device used in movies and TV shows: two handheld pads are placed on the victim’s chest while an actor yells “Clear!”) In the past, defibrillators were very heavy, expensive, needed regular maintenance, and were mostly found only in hospitals. Now there are more portable units available. A defibrillator should be used only for a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), an electrical problem that cannot be helped by CPR.

How to Use a Defibrillator

1. Turn on the defibrillator by pressing the green button. Most machines will provide both visual and voice prompts.

2. First, remove the person’s shirt and jewelry, then apply pads to the chest as shown in the diagram displayed on the machine’s LCD panel. One pad should be placed on the upper right side of the chest, one on the lower left.

3. Plug the pads into the connector. The defibrillator will analyze the patient and determine if he needs a shock. Do not touch the patient at this time.

4. If the machine determines that a shock is needed, it will direct you—both audibly and with visual prompts—to press the orange button to deliver a shock. Do not touch the patient after pressing the button. The machine will check to see whether or not the patient needs a second shock and if so will direct you to press the orange button again.

5. Check the patient’s airway, breathing, and pulse. If there is a pulse, but the patient is not breathing, begin mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If there is no pulse, repeat the defibrillation process.

Be Aware

A defibrillator should be used for a person experiencing sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a condition where the heart’s electrical signals become confused and the heart ceases to function. A person experiencing SCA will stop breathing, the pulse will slow or stop, and consciousness will be lost.

And for those of you only here for the videos:


Yes. Leonard Nimoy. Yes. It's the MUSIC VIDEO for the Bilbo Baggins song. Oh, you know you want too.

Just say the devil made you do it. ;)

If you didn't believe in Hell beforehand... you will after.

Okay, I know epinephrine,a nd I know that lidocaine is in a lot of like aloe vera solutions? How does that help people come back to life after their hearts stop? And I'm not familiar with the second.

Well...it's been the 'apocolypse' here for fifteen hours and thirty minutes. No fire and brimstone, although some people did have the misfortune to wake up to Avril Lavigne on their radios.

It's because it's the 6-6-06. It's the zero that's important, see. It changes it from being the number of the beast, to being the number of the beast who hesitates :P

The best part of that video is how excited the dancers are. hahaha. oh god.

I learned how to use a Defibrillator...it's super easy (and there's directions on the inside of the container!)

LOL! I know. Oh, man. I wonder how many drugs were on that set? Dancers in my experience are not that happy naturally hehe.

I've never had to use one luckily, but it's definitely good to know how.

Well, I read the "Left Behind series" so I know ALL about it. And if it's the Rapture today, my mother and have been. . . LEFT. BEHIND.

I actually have a friend whose mother believes that the Rapture will occur in 2012. So we have six years to find God. Unless we die first. But at least you have a ball park figure.

"Mike Seaver believes. So should you."

Good to know. ;)

I once rented that movie thinking that it was going to be just a random adventure movie. Wow was I wrong!

And have you heard that there's a new Left Behind video game that encourages you to kill anyone that doesn't become Christian?

I think that video might be a sign of the Apocalypse in and of itself. Especially that strange kangaroo dance those women were doing. You can't tell me that wasn't meant to summon something.
