Defibtech Ships over 250,000 Automated External Defibrillators

Guilford, CT
July 13, 2015

Defibtech announced today that the company has shipped more than 250,000 of its Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). The company's defibrillators, which revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest, are marketed under the brand names of Lifeline™ and ReviveR™.

“A quarter of million is a big number,” stated Defibtech CEO Gintaras Vaisnys. “We are very proud of our business achievement and moreover of the hundreds, if not thousands, of lives that have been saved, because there are more AEDs readily available in the field.”

Health experts estimate that sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 400,000 people in the United States alone. Studies show that if victims are defibrillated within three minutes after arrest, more than 74 percent survive. If defibrillation is delayed for more than 10 minutes, only 6 percent live, making immediate access to AEDs vital.

Defibtech designs various types of AEDs for both lay users and professionals. The Lifeline AUTO defibrillator automatically shocks a patient if the patient requires a shock, the Lifeline VIEW provides users not only with audible instructions, but also shows step-by-step full-color videos for how to perform CPR, rescue breathing and external defibrillation, and the PRO and ECG series of AEDs allow professional users to view ECG data and make therapeutic decisions based on patient information.  Defibtech AEDs are sold in every continent in the world and are available in over 30 languages, including dual language options.
