Can defibrillator kills a person with Cochlear Implant?
That included with if anyone has any metal in their bodies.
So I know there is lot of fluid in your body but if you have Cochlear in head and you fell down on the floor the EMS came over try to save your life and start using defibrillator. So, will defibrillator kills you if you have Cochlear Implant?
Additional Details
I don't know if this is the right place for me to ask a question.

No

You can defibrillate a person with a pacemaker - the leads fort a pacemaker are directly into the heart so CI leads shouldn't be a problem.

It goes without saying that any implant that contains metal is a risk during defibrillation. The question posed by you is really good one and not a simple one as it sounds. I give two extracts and leave the judgement to others:

1) "The patient has achieved limited open-set word comprehension and significantly improved speech, as is expected for her age. Although the patient had no problems with cardiac arrhythmias at surgery, she has since experienced a syncopal episode requiring placement of an automatic pacemaker and defibrillator. The implant has continued to work well despite the pacemaker and defibrillator." Full case report at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11140992

2)What are the Risks of Cochlear Implants?

# May not be able to have some medical examinations and treatments. These treatments include:

* MRI imaging. MRI is becoming a more routine diagnostic method for early detection of medical problems. Even being close to an MRI imaging unit will be dangerous because it may dislodge the implant or demagnetize its internal magnet. FDA has approved some implants, however, for some types of MRI studies done under controlled conditions.
* neurostimulation.
* electrical surgery.
* electroconvulsive therapy.
* ionic radiation therapy.
No mention of defibrillation in this list. Refer:
http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/ProductsandMedicalProcedures/ImplantsandProsthetics/CochlearImplants/ucm062843.htm

I rest my case.

If EMS is using a defibrillator on you, you are technically dead. The pads are placed over your heart, and sends a shock to actually stop and restart your heart.

I am sure if you have all that metal in your body it could kill you if they would use the defibrillator on you. I would never want that in my body if I ever became deaf.
