The Lifeline VIEW AED Trainer is externally similar to a fully-functional Defibtech DDU-2000 Series Automated External Defibrillator (AED), known as the Lifeline VIEW and the Lifeline ECG, in form and operation but all rubberized exterior surfaces are red over-molding, instead of black, to clearly distinguish the unit as a training device that cannot be used to defibrillate a real patient. The reusable training pads and rechargeable battery pack have red packaging and labels to distinguish them as being for training use only.
On power-up, the Lifeline VIEW AED Trainer will default to operating in “AED Video Mode” which displays visual prompts throughout the rescue scenarios. The Trainer can be put into either “AED ECG Mode,” which provides a non-diagnostic display of the heart rhythm, or “Manual Mode,” which allows overriding of the automatic features of the Trainer.
A remote control is provided with the Lifeline VIEW AED Trainer. It allows the instructor to control training exercises and functions from a distance. Trainer AEDs are factory programmed to function in Semi-Automatic mode, but can be configured with the remote control to operate in either Semi-Automatic or Fully Automatic mode. In addition, the remote control can be used to select from six representative training rescue scenarios.
