Defibtech Lifeline Semi-Auto AED | DCF-A100-EN
Defibtech Lifeline AED Benefits
- Easy to Use- audio and visual prompts guide the responder through the resuscitation process
- Transportable and Durable- Light enough for a child to carry and strong enough for the military
Technologically Advanced and Affordable- State-of-the-art technology at a reasonable price Defibtech has created an AED that is both user-friendly and technologically advanced. The Defibtech Lifeline AED is an automated external defibrillator (AED) that can be used by medical professionals and the general public alike. This unique AED is easily operated, low-cost, high-tech and portable. It was built to provide both public and healthcare settings with a reliable and effective safety instrument. The Defibtech Lifeline AED can even be used in conjunction with hands-on CPR.
Uncomplicated and User-Friendly
Defibtech designed the Lifeline AED to be functional for all levels of responders. Sudden Cardiac Arrests (SCA) can take place anywhere and chances are a medical professional will not be around to defibrillate the victim when an attack happens. Defibtech has incorporated audible prompts and a visual text screen to provide an inexperienced responder with instructions on how to use the Lifeline AED in a safe and effective manner. The responder will be guided through the life-saving process from the moment they press the on-button to the time Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrive. Most AEDs come with a carrying case that needs to be opened during the time of emergency. Defibtech has foregone this additional step, making the resuscitation process even simpler- all the responder has to do is press the on-button and the Defibtech Lifeline AED will begin its course of action.
Ventricular fibrillation is the most common form of SCA. Defibtech has used state-of-the-art technology, called biphasic defibrillation, to specifically target ventricular fibrillation. This technology increases the chances that the victim will only need to be shocked one time, ultimately increasing the survival rate of an SCA victim.
Although Defibtech’s Lifeline AED uses the newest and most advanced technology, it’s still affordable. Defibtech used a cost-effective method for designing its visual screen. Instead of using an LCD (liquid-crystal-display) screen, Defibtech has adopted the use of an LED (light-emitting diodes) screen. Not only has this modification reduced the price of the AED, it’s also upgraded the visual appeal of its text screen.
Transportable and Durable
The Defibtech lifeline AED is a combination of portability and durability. It was built to be transportable for civilians, as well as EMS workers, fire fighters and police officers. Although it only weighs 4.2 pounds, it was tough enough to withstand the US Military "drop and shock" requirements. It’s dust and water resistant.
Defibtech Lifeline AED Specs
The Defibtech Lifeline AED was purposely built to be aesthetically pleasing and non-intimidating so that a layperson would feel comfortable using this device to help resuscitate a victim of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). The Lifeline AED comes with a data card that holds up to 100 minutes of audio and ECG (electrocardiogram) information. An ECG is a procedure that records the heart’s electrical activity. This information is important and should be given to a healthcare professional if an attack occurs in order for the recording to be reviewed. Healthcare professionals can use the recording to determine when shocks were induced and the patient’s heart rhythm.
Most people without any medical skills will be skeptical to respond to an SCA. The event might cause distress and panic to those who are present during the attack. For the sake of a lay responder, automatic AEDS are easier to use because they provide an automatic shock. This eliminates an extra step in the process of resuscitating an SCA victim. However, automatic AEDS are limited and only a few brands offer them. Fortunately, Defibtech does offer an automatic model for only $50 more than the semi-automatic model.
