Defibrillators are divided into two main categories, AED hospital and AED in public, depending on the occasion of use. Today, Mindray will introduce some of the similarities and differences between AED products and some points to note when using an AED.
Medical defibrillators: They require careful handling and are usually performed by medical professionals
If you do not know how to use a medical defibrillator, not only will it be impossible to operate it, but injuries and dangers will occur. Because defibrillation is to discharge, the process is also heat generation.
If the operation is not correct, not only will it not defibrillate, but it will also burn the skin and even electrocute bystanders. There are lessons to be learned from all of this.
In medicine, there are often cases where a patient goes into cardiac arrest in the CT room and is immediately resuscitated by the accompanying physician with cardiac compressions. After the emergency physician arrives on the scene with the defibrillator, the electrode plate is coated with conductive paste and placed on the chest wall and is ready to defibrillate when the physician suddenly realizes that the ECG monitor shows that the heart has resumed and defibrillation is therefore terminated. This is because there are many different causes of sudden cardiac arrest and not every one of them requires defibrillation. If a non-healthcare worker has no experience in operating an AED device, defibrillation may cause further harm to the patient.
For this reason, public emergency services need to have AEDs in public places that are fully equipped with operating instructions and can be operated by ordinary people. Mindray is an industry leader, and a visit to its website will provide more information on its high-quality products.
