Defibrillator Services

At Ejaz Medical, we are committed to providing quality defibrillator services. We offer a wide variety of service plans that will fit your needs and budget.

Defibrillators are machines that deliver an electric shock or pulse to the heart to restore a normal rhythm. They are used to treat or prevent arrhythmias, which are irregular heartbeats. Defibrillators can also be used to restart a stopped heart.

There are several types of defibrillators, but they all perform the same basic function. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) were designed to help individuals who experience cardiac arrest survive. In an emergency, even unskilled bystanders may utilize this equipment.

Defibrillators can save lives, which is why it’s important to have one on-site in the event of an emergency. Contact us today for more information about our services!

Types of Defibrillator We Are Using

The first two digits of the defibrillator’s model number indicate which family it belongs to: AEDs, ICDs, and WCDs. Each type examines for arrhythmias and delivers a shock if one is found. Let’s find out the types of Defibrillator services we offer:

1. AEDs

AED delivers a shock if an arrhythmia is detected. They are typically portable, which means they can be used in the field before EMS arrives to treat someone who has gone into cardiac arrest.

Sticky pads with sensors, known as electrodes, are attached to the chest of a person experiencing cardiac arrest. The heart rhythm information is sent from the electrodes to a computer in the AED. The computer analyzes the heart rhythm to determine whether an electric shock is required. If so, the electrodes generate electricity through contact with the skin.

2. ICD

ICDs are implanted in the chest or abdomen, where they search for arrhythmias. A rhythm disturbance can block blood flow from your heart to the rest of your body or can cause your heart to stop beating. To cure an arrhythmia, the ICD sends a shock.

A defibrillator is a medical device that has been adapted to treat heart rhythm disorders. It’s connected to wires that detect your heart’s rhythms and deliver a shock when necessary. Some versions have wires placed in one or two of the heart’s chambers. Others do not include any wires inserted into the heart chambers instead of monitoring the cardiac rhythm.

3. WCD

WCDs include sensors that are attached to the skin. Wires link them to a device that checks your heart's rhythm and gives shocks when necessary. Low- and high-energy shocks are delivered by the WCD, just like an ICD. A belt connected to a vest is worn around your waist, along with the gadget.

The sensors detect arrhythmia and notify you with an alarm. If the warning is not required, you may turn it off, but if you do not react, the machine will shock to restore the rhythm. During an episode, this generally happens in one minute. The device can provide multiple shocks during a condition. The sensors must be replaced. Moreover, this device also sends a record of your heart activity.

How do you prepare?

Your doctor will require several tests before you receive an ICD, which may include:

Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG)

The electrical signals that cause your heart to beat are measured in an ECG. Sticky patches (electrodes) are put on your chest and occasionally on your arms and legs. The test results are displayed on a computer by connecting the electrodes to a computer, known as telemetry. An ECG can determine whether or not your heart is beating fast.

Echocardiography

A non-invasive procedure known as echocardiography uses sound waves to produce moving images of your heart. It displays your doctor the size and structure of your heart and how blood flows through it.

Holter monitoring

A Holter monitor is a tiny, wearable device that keeps track of your heart rhythm. It may be able to identify irregular heart rhythms that an ECG missed on occasion. A Holter monitor might be required for 1 to 2 days. The wires from the electrodes on your chest go to a battery-operated recording device worn in your pocket or on your shoulder.

Event recorder

If you didn't experience any arrhythmia during the Holter test, your doctor might recommend an event recorder, which can be worn for a longer period. There are many various sorts of event recorders. Event recorders function the same way as Holter monitors and usually need you to press a button when you detect symptoms.

Electrophysiology study

The doctor inserts a flexible catheter (catheter) into your heart via a blood vessel. Multiple catheters are frequently used. Sensors on the tips of each catheter send electrical signals and collect data, which your doctor evaluates to determine the source of your irregular heartbeat.
