In a lot of movies and tv a difib is used to start a heart to make a scene more climatic and emotional.  A lot of my professors say that a defib is to fix the pattern of a heart not to start a heart that is stopped.  Hope this helps.  I do not know a lot of medical but that is my experice.

Hi Guest,

A defibrillator does just that.  Stops the heart from fibrillating. 

It will not start a heart that is not beating.
