How to Use Defibrillators Properly?
Unlike traditional AED hospital equipment, Mindray produces highly automated, convenient, and practical AED products that can meet the requirements of a public emergency backup.
The use of AED equipment is divided into the following steps.
When the AED device is available, the responder should immediately turn on the machine and check if the machine, AED replacement pad, and battery are in normal condition. If normal, follow the voice prompts to continue; otherwise, immediately replace the AED device with a new one.
Remove the patient’s clothing (dry the chest or remove chest hair if necessary) and place the AED pads in the correct position according to the voice or picture instructions. Place one AED pad in the upper right corner of the chest and the other AED pad in the lower left corner of the chest, a few inches below the left armpit.
When the AED device senses the correct position of the AED pad, it will automatically analyze the heart rhythm.
If the AED device determines that conditions are suitable for a shock, it will issue a “defibrillate” command with a beeping sound. Make sure no one touches the patient after the command. Fully automatic external defibrillators automatically deliver a shock, while semi-automatic external defibrillators require the responder to press the shock button before a shock occurs.
After the shock has been delivered, or if an AED shock is not recommended, perform two minutes of CPR until the patient responds.
AED devices have undergone continuous technical optimization and improvement and are now well-suited for mass use. And Mindray, a technology leader, stands out in this regard. Visit their official website for more information.
