Le-defibrillateur.com is the European specialist in cardiac defibrillation, dedicated to the equipment of companies, associations, communities and public places. Defibrillation (together with heart massage and artificial lung ventilation) is an essential element of resuscitation, a method of treating life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias (ventricular fibrillation or pulse-free ventricular tachycardia), restoration of effective contractile ventricular activity of the heart, to bring the patient out of the state of clinical death. Defibrillation can be medicated (chemical) and electrical.
Chemical defibrillation, provided that the technical equipment of the intensive care unit is sufficiently equipped, is extremely rare. The reason is simple: drug-induced defibrillation is carried out by inserting a concentrated solution of potassium chloride into the vein of the patient, and this solution eliminates fibrillation of the ventricles of the heart by worsening myocardial contractility. As a result, to restore it requires a long heart massage and the introduction of a potassium antagonist (most often it is calcium gluconate), which often results in ventricular fibrillation. As a result, the duration of resuscitation measures increases, and its effectiveness decreases. More efficient method of restoring the normal functioning of the heart is considered to be electrical defibrillation. A powerful transient electrical pulse of the device, passing through the heart muscle, in most cases is able to restore the normal operation of this organ. Electrical defibrillation is carried out with the help of a defibrillator.
When choosing a defibrillator, it is very important to pay attention to the following basic characteristics: the type of device, the method of controlling the device (manual, automatic, or universal), the rate of energy collection between different discharges, the mass of the device and its dimensions, the device's power, the capacity of the battery and the charging time, the size of monitor screen. On website Le-defibrillateur.com is offered portable automatic external defibrillator Life-POINT b-Plus. Life-POINT b-Plus defibrillator features an automated maintenance system with its Smart Control technology. The DAE is self-checking daily, it controls its battery, its ECG software and its pacemaker detector. If it is detecting an abnormality, the DAE control bubble turns red and tells you with a voice alert message. The cost of this portable automatic external defibrillator is 1190 euro and for more information about it you can check all technical specifications on the website. After ordering you will receive your defibrillator during just 24 hours and will also receive a 5-year warranty with standard exchange.
