DEGENERATIVE EYE DISEASE An eye disease that slowly robs a person of vision without an awareness of it. First, the side vision is unnoticably gone and continues to degenerate until it is too late and victim has been completely robbed of vision. Sunlight enhances the condition, speeding up the process. Special sunglasses are worn to slow process.

DEFIBRILLATOR A shocking device that is used for victims with no sign of vitals. Electric Defibrillators have long been used in hospitals. A pair of metal paddles are placed on the patient's chest and a single jolt of direct current electricity is passed from the defibrillator into the heart to shock it back to its normal rhythm. It is also used to restart a heart which has been stopped for purposes of heart surgery.

The smaller version is equipped on Scarabs and other similar rescue boats used by the Coast Guard, Military, etc. The small, lightweight portable version has made them widely available at airports and other important areas where people congregate. Pads are attached to the chest and pulse areas to send an electric jolt to the victim's heart. They have helped save many lives, keeping a victim alive until an ambulance could arrive.
