In brief: Variety of ways

There are two kinds of defibrillators, internal and external.
Internal defibrillators are implanted under the skin similar to a permanent pacemaker. This type of defibrillator works automatically and does not require human intervention. External defibrillators are found in hospitals and in public areas. These are manually applied to the outside of the chest.

If the you is a trained medical professional, we're supposed to know what we're doing.
