A defibrillator is a medical machine used to shock a heart back into normal rhythm during a cardiac arrest. It’s true that defibrillators can save a life and using one is very easy. The defibrillator will automatically check if the patient needs a shock and talk you through to process of administering one too.
Yes, there are two different types of defibrillators. These are automatic and semi-automated defibrillators. An automatic defibrillator is one that checks and administers the shock without the user needing to press buttons. Semi-automated defibrillators move through the checks themselves, but need the user to press a button in order to shock the patient.
A defibrillator is a machine that can help a correct the heart rhythm of a patient suffering a cardiac arrest. It does this by delivering an electric shock to the heart of the patient via two wired pads placed on the body. This shock can push the heartbeat back into a normal rhythm and bring the patient round into consciousness.
There is no consistent cost for a defibrillator, but a varying cost dependent on the type of features available on each individual defibrillator. There is a price difference between semi-automatic and automatic defibrillators, for example. You’ll also find there’s a change in cost between defibs with visual aids (video) or units with audio aid. Our defibrillators range from £720 ex-VAT right the way through to over £1000 for units with additional features.
Installing a defibrillator doesn’t cost a lot. Depending on where the defibrillator is, you may want to buy a cabinet for it. This will take a small amount of time to install but it shouldn’t cost much, if anything. The cabinets are easy to install and shouldn’t require a handyman.
Defibrillators last between 10 – 15 years, but even this figure can vary depending on use and care taken with the unit. While the defib may last up to 15 years, the batteries and pads last much less than that. Typically, batteries last up to two years (if unused, less if used) and pads must be changed every two years (and will need to be replaced if used).
