Automated External Defibrillators--DEFIBTECH
January 24, 2013
Entire family of Defibtech AEDs now available to U.S. customers, providing outstanding lifesaving technology for virtually any need, budget or environment
a revolutionary color LCD video display and 3-lead ECG monitoring capability,
the Defibtech Lifeline PRO and Lifeline ECG automated external defibrillators (AEDs) have
been cleared for sale in the U.S. market by the Food and Drug Administration.
AEDs are designed to revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest, which strikes
about 380,000 Americans each year and is the leading cause of death in the U.S.
Both the Lifeline PRO and ECG AEDs are designed for professional responders. The Lifeline PRO provides full manual control over shock energy and delivery as an option. When the Lifeline PRO is operated in manual mode, an ECG appears on the color video display, and the rescuer can select the energy level and decide when to initiate charge and shock.
Operating in semi-automatic or “AED” mode, both the Lifeline PRO and ECG AEDs can display either an ECG or video instructions for the rescuer. Both models’ video and audio provide guidance on where to place the defibrillating pads and give step-by-step lifesaving instructions.
Both the Lifeline PRO and ECG AEDs continue Defibtech’s tradition of ease-of-maintenance with extensive configuration and information menus presented on the color video display. When CPR protocols change, users can update the audio and video instructions in the field by installing a software upgrade.
