Easy 3-step Guide to Operation
Step 1 – open the lid to turn on the power. Clear voice instructions start immediately and assist you through the entire procedure.
Step 2 – attach the pads to the patient. After the pads are attached, the AED-3100 starts to analyse the heart rhythm immediately.
Step 3 – If a shock is required, the shock button will flash. Simply pushing the button will deliver the electrical shock to the patient.
The Cardiolife AED-3100 can be used for both adult and paediatric patients – the shock energy can be turned down for child patients while using the same pads.
Key Features of the AED-3100
- Nihon Kohden’s continuous VT/VF analysis algorithm analyses the ECG waveform, even during CPR. Charging commences before a shock is advised so that faster defibrillation can be delivered – it takes less than 15 seconds from turning the power on to discharge.
- Cardiolife AED-3100 collects and saves the data on resuscitation (ECG and event information) for 30 minutes. This allows up to 3 applications to be documented and analysed over a period of up to 90 minutes. Data and test results can be transmitted wirelessly to a PC via Bluetooth where they can be conveniently displayed and analysed.
- The Cardiolife AED-3100 uses a lower energy, biphasic impulse curve to provide defibrillation. It uses a T-Circuit – ActiBiphasic technology – which offers an improvement over most conventional biphasic circuit concepts
- The AED-3100 performs a daily self-test whereby it checks the current AED status, pad expiration date, battery expiration date and remaining battery power. Once a month an even more thorough test is performed which a full charge and discharge is added to the daily tests.
- The AED-3100 is compact, weighing only 2.3kg, which includes the battery and pads. It has an International Protection Rating of IP55 so is therefore protected against water jets. It can operate in a wide range of temperatures, from -5 to +50°C
