The AED Plus is an semi automated external defibrillator (AED) that uses voice prompts and visual indicators to guide the rescuer through a resuscitation sequence that may include defibrillation and/or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The unit incorporates the ZOLL Rectilinear Biphasic Defibrillation waveform, and operates in either adult or paediatric mode.
The AED Plus supports both adult and paediatric defibrillation electrode pads, and automatically adjusts the defibrillation energy based on the type of electrode pads connected to it. Following attachment of electrodes to a victim’s chest, the defibrillator monitors the electrocardiographic (ECG) rhythm of the victim’s heart, analyses that rhythm, and determines whether the rhythm is shockable or non-shockable. When needed, defibrillation energy is delivered through these same electrodes. When the unit detects a shockable rhythm, it charges and issues the warning PRESS FLASHING SHOCK BUTTON. The rescuer presses the Shock Button to deliver the shock. The rescuer will then be prompted to perform CPR for a period of 2 minutes, after which the unit automatically initiates a new ECG analysis. Some versions of the AED Plus include a cover that can also be used as a PASS (Passive Airway Support System) to support the victim’s neck and shoulders in a position that assists in maintaining an open airway.
The AED Plus is powered by ten lithium-manganese dioxide batteries.
The AED Plus can: • Perform periodic self-tests to ensure its continual readiness. • Use a one-piece electrode assembly (CPR•D-pads) that facilitates proper electrode placement and that is easy to apply to the victim. • Analyse heart rhythm and inform the rescuer if the rhythm is shockable or non-shockable. • Deliver defibrillation treatment to victims of cardiac arrest who exhibit shockable ECG rhythms. • Provide voice prompts and graphics to guide the rescuer regarding what to do and when to do it during a cardiac emergency, such as calling for help or giving CPR to the victim. • Provide audible beeps to encourage rescuers to provide CPR compressions at 100 CPM (requires CPR-D• pads). • Monitor the depth of chest compressions during CPR and provide voice prompts, if compression depth is inadequate (requires CPR-D• pads). • Provide a unit cover that functions as a Passive Airway Support System (PASS). (Note the PASS feature is standard with some versions of the product and optional with others.) • Upload data from the defibrillator to a computer to store events or print event reports.
