Case How Nihon Kohden’s Cardiolife AED-3100 helps you save a life
An AED is an electronic device that delivers an electrical shock to the heart if it is needed.
Some of the people in cardiac arrest have an uncontrolled heart rhythm which can only be reset to normal by using an electrical shock. The AED measures and analyzes the heart rhythm and only if this uncontrolled rhythm is detected will the AED give a shock. They are simple to use because simple voice prompts guide the user through the defibrillation process, and early defibrillation is life saving for many cardiac arrest victims.
