Defibtech Lifeline VIEW AEDs Chosen by EasyJet Airlines

Defibtech, LLC, a leading innovator in the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) market, today announced that its Lifeline VIEW Automated External Defibrillator (AED) configured with the TSO-authorized aviation battery, has been chosen by EasyJet for use on their fleet of aircraft. EasyJet is based in the UK and has the youngest fleet of commercial passenger aircraft. The company supports destinations across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Russia. EasyJet will also be deploying Lifeline VIEW AEDs in corporate offices.   

The Defibtech Lifeline VIEW AED is the first and only AED with a full-color interactive display that shows step-by-step videos for performing CPR, rescue breathing, and external defibrillation. The user not only hears the audible instructions but also sees the video and the written text prompts on the screen, effectively providing three modes of instruction.   

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.

EasyJet chose the Lifeline VIEW because it is simple to use in high pressure situations, rugged, compact, and lightweight for stowage in overhead bins.

“Defibtech has a proven track record of supplying within the transportation sector.  More and more airlines and airports around the world are choosing Defibtech AEDs,” said Gianfranco Buchbinder, vice president of international sales. 

Defibtech AEDs are deployed at airports such as O’Hare Int’l Airport, serving over 190,000 passengers a day, and Madrid-Barajas Airport, serving 130,000 passengers a day.  Delta, Air France, Thai Airways International, and Etihad Airlines are among the carriers which already use Defibtech AEDs onboard or in their ground facilities.
