What is a portable defibrillator?

 

Un portable defibrillator is a medical device used in emergencies to treat ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia. It is an electronic instrument that, by means of an electric discharge, restores the normal heart rhythm.

These movable defibrillators are very useful for quick and effective intervention in sudden cardiac arrest. In addition, their compact and movable design makes them easily transportable and accessible, and can be used by medical and non-medical personnel trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

It is important to emphasize that, although defibrillators are a very valuable tool, it is also necessary to have trained personnel for their proper and safe use.

 

What is a portable defibrillator used for and how is it used?

 

It is a medical device used to restore normal heart rhythm in patients suffering from ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia. The defibrillator delivers an electrical shock to the heart that helps stop the arrhythmia and return it to a normal rhythm.

The device is easy to use and mobile, making it ideal for emergency situations. In order to use the defibrillator, it must first be ensured that the patient has no signs of life and the electrode must be placed on the patient's chest.

The defibrillator will automatically analyze the heart rhythm and if it detects an arrhythmia, it will provide instructions to deliver the electrical shock. These AED defibrillators are found in airports, stadiums, and other public places to help save lives in emergency situations.

 

What function does this equipment perform?

 

A mobile defibrillator is a medical device that has the function of resuscitating a person in case of cardiac arrest. This defibrillator is manageable, which allows it to be used anywhere. If a person goes into cardiac arrest, every minute that passes decreases their chances of survival. Therefore, it is crucial to act quickly if there are no medical personnel.

The defibrillator, through an electrogenic discharge, can restore a person's normal heart rhythm. It is important to remember that this device does not replace the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuver, but is complementary to it.

It is vital that in an emergency situation the emergency services be called immediately by calling the number 112, which will indicate how to use the automatic external defibrillator and how to perform CPR in order to resuscitate the person.

 

What is the price of a portable defibrillator?

 

The price varies depending on the model and brand. It is an important investment, as it can save lives in an emergency. Portable defibrillators are a medical device that can be used by individuals without specific medical training, although some training is recommended prior to use. Prices can range between 1000 and 3500 euros, depending on the technology and characteristics of the device.

In addition, it is important to note that regular maintenance and calibration of the automated defibrillator can add additional costs. Despite its high price, it can be an excellent tool for people who have heart problems or for those who work in facilities where nerve problems can occur, such as stadiums and sports centers. It is essential to make this type of investment to be prepared for any health emergency.
