The devices are designed to be surgically implanted in the chest area and monitor cardiac function. Defibrillators can detect a heartbeat that is either too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia), and delivers an electrical impulse or a series of shocks to various parts of the heart to restart normal function.
