Your statement is about 0% accurate.
Defibrillators do NOT have anything to do with CPR or "restarting a stopped heart". They can't do that. Defibrillators defibrillate; when the heart is fibrillating, you shock it to stop it so the body's internal pacemaker can 'start from scratch'. If the heart already stopped, stopping it some more won't do anything.
