"You use the paddles to administer an electric shock to people whose hearts are beating irregularly."
Samantha Carter to Urgo[src]

A defibrillator is a device that is used to generate an electrical current through a human body in order to restore the natural rhythm in the heart. They usually contain two paddles. The defibrillator was created by the Tau'ri, where they usually have them in Stargate Command, Atlantis, and even portable versions in Puddle Jumpers. They have been used offensively to stop an Iratus bug from killing Major John Sheppard and to defeat the entity within the Crystal of M3X-387.
