Peace of Mind for All Aboard

In remote locations, such as a commercial vessel, there is no ambulance on its way, and there is no hospital nearby. AEDs are the only treatment available for passengers or crew members that are victims of sudden cardiac arrest. In challenging environments, an AED provides rescuers with the knowledge and confidence they need to help save a life.

Survival Rate

Unfortunately, most of the time, the necessary life-saving equipment does not arrive in time. As a result, typical survival rates are only 2%-5%.

Now there is something you can do to improve the odds dramatically for your passengers and crew members with a solution that is easy to use and inexpensive to buy.

Defibtech’s solution

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is caused by chaotic electrical activity in the heart and can only be treated with an electric shock called defibrillation. Recent advances in modern technology, along with legislative support from federal and state governments, have made a solution available to the public. Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are this life-saving solution.


Defibtech AEDs are deployed on inland waterway, coastal, and blue water commercial vessels. Cost-effective, water resistant, easy for non-professionals to operate, and suitable for use in high vibration settings, Defibtech’s AEDs are the ideal solution for treating cardiac arrest away from port.

A Lifeline AED saved the life of a towboat worker on the Illinois River. The towboat was equipped with a Lifeline AED thanks to the efforts of a distributor who turned to selling Lifeline AEDs after the loss of his 19-year-old daughter to sudden cardiac arrest.
