Fully Automatic AED Benefits

In the chaos that follows sudden cardiac arrest, concerned but untrained people are hesitant to intervene. Will they know what to do? There’s a life on the line!

AEDs in the fully automatic mode of operation eliminate the need to push a shock button and have been proven to be advantageous for lay rescuers. Taking away the decision making process and time needed by not having to push a shock button makes the rescue attempt easier and provides the only life-saving therapy more quickly to the patient. The shock is delivered automatically, with no button to push, and no human intervention.

Early defibrillation combined with CPR can improve survival rates to as high as 74% when defibrillation is provided within three minutes of collapse. For every minute that elapses between sudden cardiac arrest and defibrillation, the chance of survival decreases 7 to 10%. That’s why choosing an automated external defibrillator (AED) that can be trusted to help reduce unnecessary shock delays could make the difference between life and death.

While all AEDs are designed to be user-friendly, fully automatic AEDs make it even easier for a responder to help a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. A fully automatic AED is designed to give a shock automatically, if needed, without the user having to push a button to deliver that shock. The device communicates clear, calm, step-by-step instructions that let responders know when a victim is about to be shocked. Fully automatic models are designed to help responders who may hesitate to push the shock button.

Fully Automatic vs. Semi-Automatic AEDs

All AEDs automatically analyze the heart rhythm to determine if a shock is needed. However, there are two types of lay-user AEDs—fully automatic and semiautomatic. If a shock is needed, semiautomatic AEDs prompt rescuers to press a shock button. A fully automatic AED is designed to give a shock automatically, if needed, without the rescuer having to push a button to deliver that shock. The device communicates step-by-step instructions that let rescuers know when a victim is about to be shocked.
