Patient vocab

Me: Is this just a pacemaker, or is it a defibrillator as well?
Patient: Wait, what?
Me: Does this thing make sure your heart beats every time, or does it shock you too if needed?
Patient: Oh, yeah, it's defibulated me a couple of times just this month!

Defibulator: That little device which shocks you at a later time if you lie about its purpose...
