Defibtech, LLC, a leading innovator in the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) market, today announced that Nihon Kohden will be expanding its product offering by making the full line of Defibtech AEDs available through its North American sales network, effective immediately.

Defibtech is a sister company of Nihon Kohden, a leading manufacturer, developer and distributor of medical electronic equipment, with subsidiaries in the U.S., Europe and Asia.  “We recognize the intense demands placed on U.S. healthcare professionals who are tasked every day with not only improving but saving patient lives,” said Dr. Wilson Constantine, CEO of Nihon Kohden America. “Defibtech has redefined the AED product class, incorporating state-of-the-art technology in a broad product portfolio that can provide the appropriate level of support for any emergency. We are proud to offer these solutions to Nihon Kohden customers in the United States.”

Defibtech AEDs are sophisticated enough to meet the needs of the most demanding professional rescuers and health care providers. Defibtech’s Lifeline ECG and Lifeline PRO AEDs may be used for public access and professional applications.  3-lead ECG monitoring, and Manual Override for total control of shock energy and delivery, are examples of the flexibility these AEDs offer and why they are well suited for a wide variety of applications within Emergency Medical Services and Healthcare Facility environments. 

Defibtech uses advanced design and manufacturing techniques to develop its award winning products, and is the first and only manufacturer to incorporate full-color, interactive video displays into AEDs.  “We are committed to saving lives, and are working to get as many AEDs on the market as possible to help achieve this goal,” said Gintaras Vaisnys, CEO of Defibtech. “This partnership with Nihon Kohden America will help us greatly expand our U.S. footprint, benefitting clinicians and sudden cardiac arrest victims across the country.”
