What does AED mean?

The abbreviation AED comes from English and means automated external defibrillator, in Polish the abbreviation is translated as AUTOMATIC EXTERNAL


Computer-based, fully automated. This means that the defibrillator operates according to a set and programmed algorithm that is designed to detect ventricular fibrillation or supraventricular tachycardia without a pulse. Once launched, it guides the user through the entire resuscitation process. After applying the electrodes, the device examines the heart rhythm and allows the defibrillation pulse to be given only when necessary.


So using self-adhesive electrodes that are placed on the patient's skin. The electrodes are disposable and must be replaced after they have been used. However, it is worth remembering that for the same patient during one event - you can use them repeatedly. Remember - if you use Samaritan PAD to save lives and report it to our company - you will receive new Pad-Pak electrodes and batteries as a gift from us.


A device that sends a special pulse of direct current to the heart through electrodes and causes its normal rhythm to return. Defibrillation suppresses the chaotic rhythm, allowing proper return and is the only option combined with cardiopulmonary resuscitation to save the life of a person affected by sudden cardiac arrest.
