Defibtech Tops 200,000 Automated External Defibrillators

Guilford, CT

Defibtech – a leading designer and manufacturer of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) – announced today that the company has shipped more than 200,000 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™.

“Our defibrillators have been very well received not only in the United States, where the units are manufactured, but throughout the world,” said Defibtech president Gintaras Vaisnys. “We are proud of our business achievement and it is also very gratifying to know that with more and more AEDs in the field, more and more lives are being saved. Reports of our AEDs being used to save lives motivate our company to continue to design highly effective and affordable medical equipment.”

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 (except Antarctica) and are available in over 20 languages.  

Health experts estimate that sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 380,000 people in the United States alone. 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.
