The uncertainty of life is just a matter of seconds. But to bring back a human to the perfect shape, the heart has to be alive first. This is why the defibrillating devices are one of the must-have equipment in sporting complexes, universities, schools, construction, mining, and other industrial sites, and even at your home where there is a person who’s much prone to a cardiac arrest.
External and automated
Although there are internally working devices, that’s a complicated process, to begin with. But it never means that a certain defibrillating device is better just because they work externally.
Most would get manual devices to realize that the operation requires medical technical knowledge, and once an emergency comes up, things get too complicated. That’s why the device has to be both external and automated.
They are not extremely medical
Even if a defibrillating device was external and automated, it still is not enough. Most medical equipment manufacturers are producing for the medical industry although some purchase them for industrial and domestic use.
Hence even with automatic, it requires extensive equipment handling knowledge such as knowing whether to perform CPR and at what rate. These complications will be settled when you choose defibrillating devices that require the least medical knowledge.
Takes less than 10 seconds to initiate a shock
There are two main types of occasions defibrillating devices come into play; on the first occasion, you do not whether or not the patient needs a shock, and on the second occasion, you’re certain that they need a shock.
On occasions like these, manually operated defibrillating devices would take longer to initiate a device when a well-functioning AED defibrillator would be able to do it in less than 10 seconds. It’s little characteristics like these that can save a life in an emergency.
Presence of video and audio prompts
Even if the chosen defibrillating devices were not entirely medical, external, and automated, the people who use them will hardly have experience and memory from the safety training. Sometimes, the person who ends up using the device might not have any experience at all.
This is why it’s crucial to have both audio and video promotes that make it easier for even a schoolchild to perform the duty.
Longer lifespan with least maintenance costs
If the battery & pads aren’t combined in one cartridge, it’s a sign that you’re going to have to do constant replacements. But if they are connected, their minimum lifespan should be at least 2 years. This is the industry standard although you’ll be able to find better equipment with a longer lifespan.
The implementation procedure is quite simple
A clear explanation of the machine is different from being able to perform it in real life. Thus, you should be wise enough to pick defibrillating devices whose procedure is viable to be performed by an average human being.
The bag is shockproof
This goes without saying; there’s a good chance for the bag to fall down in the heat of the moment. If the manufacturer is disregarding this common risk, then you need to reevaluate the characteristics regarding the core performance.
