The availability of an easy-to-use and rapid-application defibrillator can make a great difference in providing effective emergency cardiovascular care. Nihon Kohden’s Cardiolife AED-3100 automated external defibrillator (AED) enables anyone to save a life. Its intuitive design and voice instruction simplifies and accelerates the delivery of defibrillation. Cardiolife AED-3100 also allows the shock energy to be turned down for child patients while using the same pads. Analysis of the heart rhythm and charging during CPR enables faster defibrillation delivery. AEDs need to be managed and checked on a regular basis; with the implementation of an effective maintenance program, this can be done remotely in order to save time and effort.
