Fast, safe and simple to use defibrillator
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.
Easy 3-step operation
Step 1 – Open the lid
Open the lid to turn on the power. Clear voice instructions will start immediately and guide you through the entire procedure
Step 2 – Attach the pads to the patient
After attaching the pads, the AED-3100 immediately starts to analyze the heart rhythm
Step 3 – Press the shock button
If a shock is needed the shock button is flashing. Push the button to deliver the electrical shock to the patient
Suitable for all ages
The Cardiolife AED-3100 can be used for both adult and pediatric patients, without changing the pads. The energy switch allows defibrillation for pediatric patients by simply switching to the child mode to deliver less energy.
Every day the Cardiolife AED-3100 performs a self-test. This daily test consists of checking the current AED status, pad expiration date, battery expiration date and remaining battery power. Once per month an even more thorough test is performed, where a full charge and discharge is added to the daily tests. When AED linkage is used for remotely monitoring, an alert is automatically sent, if any abnormality is detected.
Rescue data saved
The Cardiolife AED-3100 collects and saves the data on resuscitation (ECG and event information) for 30 minutes. This means up to three applications can be documented and analyzed over a period of up to 90 minutes. The saved data and test results can be transmitted wireless to a PC via Bluetooth, where they can be conveniently displayed and analyzed.
Durable and compact design
The Cardiolife AED-3100 operates in a wide range of temperatures, from -5 to +50 ˚C. It has a compact body which weighs only 2.3 kg, including the battery and pads. With an International Protection Rating of IP66, the AED-3100 is protected against water jets.
Continuous heart rhythm analysis
Nihon Kohden’s continuous VT/VF analysis algorithm analyses the ECG waveform, even during CPR. Charging starts before a shock is advised. This helps to deliver faster defibrillation than ever before. It takes less than 15 seconds from turning the power on to discharge. Faster charging time helps deliver energy quickly when VT or VF is observed.
The Cardiolife AED-3100 provides defibrillation with the aid of a lower energy, biphasic impulse curve. It uses a particular T-circuit – ActiBiphasic technology – which offers an improvement over most conventional biphasic circuit concepts.
