Defibrillator & Monitoring
A defibrillator with a monitor is a medical device used by emergency care professionals for resuscitation and patient monitoring. It assesses and monitors the ECG and delivers a countershock to patients during a cardiac arrest.
The units can also deliver synchronised cardioversion for treating other conditions such as ventricular tachycardia, ventricular bradycardia or asystole.
The defibrillator has to perform effectively to avert an otherwise avoidable death during a cardiac arrest. The device detects then informs the medical professional about the need for shock emission.
An ideal defibrillator and monitor must quickly start cardiac rhythm analysis while monitoring a patient’s vital signals. It should be portable and compact to allow for functions like ventilation, oxygen treatment and monitoring within the unit. At the same time, the device should be robust enough to handle all the physical elements like shocks, vibrations and extreme temperatures.
