Most doctors and nurses still remember the excitement they felt during their first experiences using defibrillators. After many years of diligence and attention to detail, much of that excitement is now gone thanks to smart machines and stick-on defibrillator pads. Ian Miller, a blogger at ImpactedNurse.com, claims to have modified a Zoll defib for a bit extra theatrical flourish.
Now we still use pads, but the pitiful orange button has been replaced by a giant Mad Scientist type knife switch. When you yell “stand clear!” with this baby, you are going to get some respect. “I am about… to throw… the switch!”
It also has a wireless link to the rooms lighting panel and momentarily dims and flickers the lights for effect.
Now this is a defibrillator.
