Purchasing the correct defibrillator for your needs is a must. There are a variety of different options so knowing what they are and if you’d prefer one over the other is a must ahead of purchasing.
The different types of defibrillators
There are 2 different types of defibrillators – automatic and semi-automatic. Both are very similar to one another however there are minor differences for which you may have a preference for when choosing your AED.
Automatic defibrillators, as the name suggests, have the ability to automate the entire process. Its built-in computer systems allow for the equipment to carry out the shock entirely on its own. This is largely preferred by those who want to leave the task itself to professional equipment or those who may not feel comfortable enough to use the defibrillator.
The semi-automatic defibrillators are largely similar to the automatic but allow for more user input ahead of administering the shock. These types of defibrillators require the user to press a button to carry out the shock. This requires more attention and responsibility from the operator.
If you’re not feeling confident enough to operate a semi-automatic defibrillator but would like to be, we suggest exploring our training options found here.
