Where does a DEA defibrillator get energy to be autonomous? The answer is simple, batteries. Manganese Oxide batteries are responsible for operating all external defibrillators in the market.
Types of electric energy accumulators that we can find in DEA defibrillators
As we can see in the following photographs, when opening a defibrillator we can find different formats. We can see the battery of batteries when opening the device, or this can be hidden in a battery box.
In defibrillation, the current is very important, and we cannot ignore it. We have to keep in mind that defibrillation parameters are defined as energy and not as current. We could define energy as:
The voltage that is charged to the capacitor inside the device corresponds to the energy parameter of a defibrillator. But it must be taken into account that this correlation is not the same for all devices. Some can charge 2.200 volts, while others can charge 1.500 volts. For this reason, it is not appropriate to compare the energy parameters between different devices.
"Duracell Ultra" batteries for last generation defibrillators, Lithium batteries with the guarantee of a great brand
The "Duracell Ultra" batteries for DEA DESA defibrillators guarantee durability and a number of discharges, they are lithium batteries for last generation defibrillators. All defibrillators on the market use this type of technology, since it has been bought that is the most effective so far.
We could say that there are two large types of electric energy accumulators with the ability to supply them that are used in DEA defibrillators, these would be, Lithium batteries and Manganese Oxide batteries. All external defibrillators on the market are composed of manganese oxide batteries. Lithium batteries are what we can find in our mobile phones, for example.
Manganese oxide, the composition of defibrillator batteries, is an abundant material that is easy to obtain. In addition, it is not a toxic material, neither for humans nor for the environment.
The defibrillator's battery status is of vital importance when resuscitating a person
There are two types of currents, average current and peak current. The peak current is the maximum amount of current that reaches the heart, while the average current is the average amount that reaches the heart during discharge.
The use of this form of energy does not imply a danger in itself. The danger comes from the lack of maintenance in defibrillators, and the neglect that many times, accompanies such an important device in case of cardiac arrest. A failed discharge due to a lack of electric charge of batteries or batteries can have fatal consequences.
Periodically check your defibrillator's charge status
Periodically check the status of your defibrillator, we perform periodic inspections on DEA devices, we are experts in defibrillator maintenance services so that they are always in perfect conditions of use. The amount of current applied to the heart is determined by Voltage / Impedance. This relationship is known as Ohm's Law.
Preventive maintenance of defibrillators with battery replacement included
For this reason, from Project Lifeguard we take these reviews of DEA devices very seriously. In addition, to have 24 technical assistance hours for DEA defibrillators, our defibrillators have a system that allows us to know the situation and state of the device, our software allows us to know the state of charge of the batteries of all the defibrillators that we have installed.
Having a team of experts like ours guarantees you peace of mind and security; in everything related to spare parts such as batteries or batteries, for example, that few can give you, since we are exclusively specialized in the creation and maintenance of cardio protected areas.
