A defibrillator is a life-saving device that delivers a controlled amount of electric current to the heart to stop irregular heartbeats and restore a normal heartbeat. Defibrillation is a procedure used to treat life-threatening heart conditions like sudden cardiac arrest and arrhythmias. These serious heart conditions can cause the lower chambers of the heart to beat unevenly and extremely fast, which prevents adequate blood from going to the brain and body, which can quickly be fatal.
While defibrillation is performed by medical professionals in hospitals but automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are found in many public places that can be used by a layperson to save the lives of people experiencing cardiac arrest. HPFY offers AED machines that are highly reliable and effectively deliver a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to affected heart patients. We also have other defibrillator accessories, including lithium batteries, defibrillator pads, mounting brackets, metal wall cabinets, and many more.
Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) is a lightweight, portable, battery-operated, easy to use device designed to analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, send an electrical shock
to the heart to restore normal rhythm. This device is used to treat people experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. The AED system includes accessories, such as pad electrodes and a battery that is necessary for the device to detect and interpret an electrocardiogram and deliver an electrical shock.
AED defibrillators are simple to operate and can be used by laypersons and basic life support-trained personnel. These machines are widely available in airports, offices, schools, casinos, and other public areas. Philips HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator is designed for simple and reliable operation, and it uses clear natural voice instructions that talk to you through each step.
AED devices can be semi-automated or fully automated:
Semi-automated defibrillators check the heart’s rhythm. If an abnormal heart rhythm is detected and a shock is necessary, the device prompts the rescuer to press a button to send a defibrillation shock.
Fully automated defibrillators analyze the heart's rhythm and, if a shock is required, deliver a defibrillation shock without user intervention commanded by the device software.
Anyone may need an AED machine at home because SCA can strike at any time to anyone and even healthy people. However, a home defibrillator is especially valuable for people at risk of cardiac arrest. Having an AED machine can provide peace of mind and help save their lives. The risk factors for cardiac arrest may include:
When a cardiac arrest occurs, every second counts. Every minute delayed, the chances of survival decrease. If your loved ones are at risk of cardiac problems, owning a home defibrillator can provide protection.

Defibrillators (ICD) is a battery-operated device placed under your skin to keep track of your heart rate. Whenever an abnormal heart rhythm is detected the device delivers an electric shock in order to restore the normal heartbeat if your heart is beating chaotically or much too fast.
Persons who may have a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) are the ones who need a defibrillator. One of the most common cause of SCA is an arrhythmia called ventricular fibrillation (v-fib). In v-fib, the ventricles (the heart's lower chambers) fail to beat normally.
If immediate defibrillation is provided to a person experiencing sudden cardiac arrest chances of survival dramatically increase, compared to delayed defibrillation.
Types of defibrillators include:
ICD is recommended to people who are at risk of:
