At the scene of a sudden cardiac arrest, there is no time to lose. Every minute that passes means less of a chance for a victim to be saved. But no matter where or when sudden cardiac arrest strikes, early use of an automated external defibrillator is the only effective treatment for ventricular fibrillation, a potentially fatal heart rhythm associated with sudden cardiac arrest. Although not everyone can be saved from sudden cardiac arrest, studies show that early defibrillation can dramatically improve survival rates.
Whether its victims are young or old, at the office or in class, worshipping, exercising or just walking in an airport gate, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) knows no boundaries. Koetter Security offers a line of AEDs to suit every business or organization's needs. The devises featured on this page are a sample of our offering from top manufacturers in this industry. Call today and let's talk about your AED requirements.
AED, or automated external defibrillators, are small electronic devices that were designed to allow minimally-trained people to provide lifesaving defibrillation (electric shock to the heart) to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Unlike the defibrillators seen on medical TV shows, AEDs are small, lightweight and very easy to operate. They are about the size of a lunch box and have adhesive electrode pads that rescuers attach to the person's chest.
An AED is very simple to use and houses the same sophisticated defibrillation technology relied on by emergency medical services personnel and physicians.
The Medtronic/Physio Control LifePak Express AED is a great choice for organizations seeking to start an AED program. The electrode pads and Charge-Pak battery have a long life and matching expiration date for a lower maintenance cost. The unit also features a visual display that provides information to the responder indicating if the AED is up-to-date and ready for use.
Philips designed the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator for the ordinary person in the extraordinary moment. Available without a prescription, the OnSite is designed to be the easiest-to-use, and most reliable defibrillator available. This innovative technology, based on extensive research and user feedback, has produced a defibrillator so easy to use that you can potentially save the life of a co-worker, friend, or anyone else stricken with sudden cardiac arrest. OnSite AED weighs only 3.3 lbs.
The LifePak CR Plus AED is designed for minimally trained rescuers in commercial and public settings who are often the first person at the scene of a sudden cardiac arrest. The portable medical device is lightweight (4.5 lbs), water resistant, and incorporates the latest ADAPTIV biphasic technology, which automatically adjusts energy based on the SCA victim's specific needs. The device has the capability to escalate to an industry-leading 360 joules when required.
The device stores sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) data for wireless transmission through an infrared IrDA port to a personal computer. This eliminates the need for data cards.
The operating simplicity of this device allows minimally trained rescuers to turn the device on and apply the Quik-PAK electrode pads to the victim's bare chest. The device is available in two model options: semi-automatic and automatic. Both models assess the person in sudden cardiac arrest with the fully automatic model delivering a shock only it if determines a heart needs it, with no action required from the rescuer. The semi-automatic model analyzes the heart's rhythm and if a shock is required, an audible command will tell the rescuer to push a button to deliver the shock.
The LifePak CR Plus is easy to own and maintain, performing automatic self-tests weekly and monthly. The electrodes and battery CHARGE-PAK allow for synchronized replacement.
This device is the choice of more EMS units globally than any other brand because the LifePak CR Plus uses the same electrodes as other LifePak devices and carries the industry leading 8 year warranty.
