Co-founded in 1999 by cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Glenn W Laub and engineer Gintaras Vaisnys, Defibtech combines the fields to create, manufacture and distribute one of the world’s finest AED’s. Over the course of four years, the partners worked to create a superior, user-friendly AED that would revolutionize the marketplace. Introduced in 2003, the Defibtech AED offered high quality and reliability in a full-featured AED at nearly half the process of competing products. Manufactured in the US, the Defibtech AED has won awards and distinctions including the designation as the official AED of the Winter Olympic Games in Torino, Italy.
The Lifeline AED was the device that began the Defibtech empire. The device is simple to use, with only two buttons on the front of the machine. One button turns the AED on and the other shocks the patient. Simple voice commands walk the rescuer through the process with clear and concise instructions, stated one step at a time. Bright progress lights add additional visual feedback to the rescue progress. Lightweight, highly visible and simple to use, the Lifeline AED has two battery life options – a five-year battery that will work for up to eight continuous hours or deliver 125 shocks and a seven-year battery that will work continuously for up to 16 hours or deliver more than 300 shocks.
The Lifeline View is the only AED with a full-color display to show the rescuer what to do in addition to the voice prompts found in the original Lifeline. The large, full-color, interactive display shows you proper form for CPR, rescue breathing and external defibrillation. The Lifeline View also has a built-in CPR metronome that times compressions and switches from compressions-only to rescue breathing rescue when necessary.
The Lifeline ECG AED has all of the features of the original Lifeline AED with the added benefit of a three lead monitoring adapter and ECG monitoring. Not only will the AED keep track of the victim’s heart rate and the number of shocks that have been administered, but it will also time overall rescue efforts as well as CPR compressions.
The Lifeline AUTO is a fully automatic defibrillator designed to analyze heart rhythms and automatically deliver a shock – without intervention – if needed.
