“Defibrillators repulse me”

Defibrillators are machines for life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. The machines can help someone regain a pulse, but that does not make them “repulsive” (a pun).
   
“Defibrillators repulse me” was posted on Twitter by Nick Harvey馃 on March 30, 2012 (and several times after this). “DEFIBRILLATORS REPULSE ME” (shown on a sign) was posted on Facebook by Indian Hills Community Sign on January 27, 2023.
   
 
Wikipedia: Defibrillation
Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (V-Fib) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (V-Tach). A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a counter-shock) to the heart. Although not fully understood, this process depolarizes a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the arrhythmia. Subsequently, the body’s natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm.
