The Defibtech Lifeline View AED has a large interactive full color display with step by step instructions for carrying out CPR, including the provision of rescue breathing, and for supplying external defibrillation.
An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is an electronic device that can automatically detect when someone is suffering a life threatening cardiac arrhythmia. It can then supply an electrical signal to treat the arrhythmia by means of defibrillation. This signal gives the heart a chance to re- establish an effective rhythm so that it can continue to function properly. Once an effective rhythm has been established, the heart can continue using a rhythm that is subject to control by its internal pacemaker cells.
When using this unit, the responder can easily and quickly switch from either (a) compression only CPR or (b) rescue breathing to using both modes. As a result, he or she can easily configure the unit to carry out CPR in a way that is consistent with the responder’s training and/or preferences.
