New from safety specialists Bull Products, is an automated external defibrillator (AED) ideal for many private companies and public organisations where it’s on-site availability can make the difference between life and death of an individual.
Statistics show that nearly 200,000 people die each year as a result of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). An AED operated by a trained user can raise the chance of survival by a massive 75%.
Called the Life Point Pro AED, the unit comes in a neat protective carry case and can be deployed quickly in the event of SCA. Although training in the use of the equipment is recommended and provided by Bull Products, the unit features real-time voice commands and step by step guidance. There is a simple three-step operation of simply turning the device on, unpacking the pads and attaching them to the patient’s chest, followed by defibrillation by pressing the shock button. Designed to be easily used by the layman, the Life Point Pro helps time cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to perfection, and is invaluable in saving someone experiencing SCA.
The new AED is very compact at 300 x 260 x 120mm and weighs just 2.2Kg enabling swift access to patients. It is powered by a 15V 3000 mA lithium manganese battery, giving a life of 5 years allowing Bull Products to provide a 5-year warranty on the device. It is programmed to test itself at weekly and monthly intervals and if it detects a low battery level it alerts the user. The product is fully compliant with UK regulations and British Standards. The Life Point Pro AED is priced at £995 plus VAT.
Various accessories are available for the Life Point Pro AED including a wall cabinet, spare defibrillator pads and spare battery packs. Two hour and four hour training courses in the use of the device are also available from Bull Products and can be organised at the location of the user’s choice. Also under the ‘Bull National Defibrillator Programme’, users can benefit from the ownership of the Life Point Pro AED plus all its accessories, initial training and refresher training over a three year period for £14.85 per week.
