How are AED defibrillators used?


A defibrillator is a appears to supply electrical discharges to the heart through the thoracic wallThanks to the sensors it has, this device is able to analyze the heart rate, determine when to proceed with the discharge and connect to which intensity level it should be.

The main function of what appears is restore the heart rate of a patient who has just had a heart attack. In these situations, the time factor is determining, so it is recommanable that not only the health professionals at the disposal of a defibrillator, but That companies also share these elements in order to save lives.


How do we use a defibrillator?


In this article we will explain how a defibrillator works and how to use it in an emergency.

The first step is to place the defibrillator in position. Some will automatically open the lid, others will first press the power button. If the defibrillator reaches the victim, someone is in front of Basic Vital Support, the compressions must continue while the electrodes are placed on the pit.

Placing the sticks on the victim's neck, normally they have their position re-established: One, on the right side of the thorax below the collarbone, next to the breast. The other side, on the left side, below the pit, to the costelles area. Once col·locats, the defibrillator will analyze the heart rate, during this process it is very important that no one touches the victim.

If the defibrillator is told to deliver a shock, we will again ensure that it does not touch the victim, and press the shock button. Immediately afterward, we will start Basic Vital Support. If the defibrillator indicates that it is NOT necessary to deliver a shock, we will immediately begin Basic Life Support again. Every 2 minutes, the defibrillator will automatically deactivate the Basic Vital Support to analyze the rhythm again, and whether or not to carry out a discharge (according to the indications on the device).


Post-discharge CPR


It is essential that you continue with the resuscitation techniques so that: the victim breathes back to normal, you work on them or it is necessary, a health professional in the right way.

To perform correct CPR, follow the following steps:

  • The first step you have to perform is by placing the base of the man's palms over the center of the victim's pit. Amb una más sobre l'altra, you keep stretching the trees and performing the movement from left to right. You must use all the weight of the piece, pressing to compress the pit, at the same time as five centimeters. Repeat this movement at a pace of 100 to 120 compressions per minute.
  • After completing this process, up is the second. Normally, if you are already trained in CPR, after the first 30 compressions, start breathing. To do this, you have to tilt the person's head and lift the chin. Start col·locant el palmell de la mà al front i, suaument, mou el cap cap enrere. Then, with the tea againaixeca el mentó cap endavant. This way you prevent the tongue from impeding the passage of air to the lungs.
  • Finally, rescue breathing can provide oxygen to the patient through the mouth or skin. In the latter case, there is always the case that the mouth area is injured and I cannot act. If this circumstance is not present, open the nasal passages and start mouth-to-mouth, unite the mouth with the mouth. After the first inflation, see if the pit rises per second. If it does not pass, repeat the maneuver of opening the respiratory tract and try again to donate oxygen.

You have to repeat this compression-overture-breathing cycle. That is to say, 30 compressions plus two daily contributions. This ends with the person regaining consciousness or losing some muscle. Or you have an automatic external defibrillator to apply it according to the instructions.
