Overview of Defi 5s
The Defi 5s Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, safe and battery powered device. It is design for simple and reliable operation of trained users. It can be used in situations where there could be several minutes before the arrival of advanced life support (ALS) personnel.
The Defi 5s Automatic External Defibrillator recognizes ventricular fibrillation and other ventricular tachycardia and guides operators through the defibrillation process. When properly connected to a patient who is unconscious, not breathing, and without a pulse, the Defi 5s Automatic External Defibrillator analyzes the patient's heart rhythm, provides visual and audio instruction prompts, determines if a shockable situation exists and then indicates user to press shock button.
The Defi 5s Automatic External Defibrillator delivers the defibrillation shock through two self-adhesive, pre-gelled, low-impedance electrode defibrillator pads. The pads, cable, and connector are sold as disposable kits.
The Defi 5s Automatic External Defibrillator is designed for INFREQUENT USE，and the term used to describe a DEFIBRILLATOR designed to endure less than 2500 discharges.
Advanced biphasic technology
Easy operation: three buttons
Compact design: easy to carry and easy to operate
User friendly guide: clear voice and visual prompts
Lock-out protection to prevent inadvertent defibrillation
Two modes: adult mode and children mode
The Defi 5s is used to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) which most is caused by ventricular fibrillation (VF) or pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VT). SCA is the cessation of normal circulation of the blood due to the heart unexpectedly stops beating. The causes of SCA are varied, but the signs or symptoms of SCA are hardly revealed during the daily life.
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time. According to AHA (American Heart Association) CPR statistics, there are about 300,000 victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year in the U.S. alone, and less than 8% of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.
Early defibrillation is critical to survival from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) for several reasons: the most frequent initial rhythm in out-of-hospital witnessed SCA is ventricular fibrillation (VF), the treatment for ventricular fibrillation is defibrillation, the probability of successful defibrillation diminishes rapidly over time, and VF tends to deteriorate to asystole over time.
To treat VF SCA, rescuers must be able to rapidly integrate CPR with use of the AED.
