The trick is NOT to apply the power when wet, as this is when the damage can be caused, water is a great conductor.
As long as things are left to dry out and then cleaned they are usually ok.
A few years ago the ambulance guys dropped a defib in the sea as they were tryingf to revive a swimmer. They bought it to us, we opened it up, "washed it" in de-ionised water, let it dry out for a week and it worked.It continued to work for several years later, only its age and the advent of a new model led to it being scrapped.
