Defibtech Expands Line of Dual Language AEDs 

Guilford, CT
July 14, 2014

Defibtech, LLC, a leading innovator in the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) market, today announced that its Lifeline VIEW AED can now be ordered in a number of different dual language combinations.

The Lifeline VIEW AED guides the user step by step through a rescue using three means of instruction--audible voice prompts, full color motion video, and on-screen text. For dual language VIEW AEDs, the voice prompts are provided in both a primary language as well as an easy-to-select secondary language. There are currently seven combinations of dual languages available, including German-English, German-French, French-English, Norwegian-English, and Dutch-French.

“The Lifeline VIEW AED is designed to provide the most clear and comprehensive instructions as possible, “said Gintaras Vaisnys, president. “It is natural then, that the next development in our products designed for export is to allow the user to choose the language of instruction. This innovation provides the next level of assurance that the user will be able to follow instructions to provide effective help in the case of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.” 

Defibtech AEDs have been shipped to more than 40 countries worldwide, including Italy, Germany, France, Netherlands, UK, Ireland, Australia, Argentina, Hong Kong, Korea, and India.  All of Defibtech’s AEDs are manufactured in the United States, and exports account for nearly half of the company’s annual sales.

AEDs revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation. Studies show that if victims are defibrillated within a minute or two after arrest, more than 70 percent survive. If defibrillation is delayed for more than 10 minutes, only 5 percent live, making immediate access to AEDs vital.
