Resuscitation process with LifePad® & defibrillator

The interaction between CPR and defibrillator is critical to successful resuscitation.

* only pick it up yourself if in the immediate vicinity

**if available

Guideline recommendation

How many LifePad® devices are required in the workplace?

It is recommended that the number of LifePad® resuscitation aids required in a workplace is based on the number of first aid kits required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. The number of LifePad® devices should correspond to at least the number of first aid kits in a workplace.

OSHA guidelines specify how workplaces and construction sites must be equipped with first aid kits according to the nature of the activity and the number of employees. As a general rule, one first aid kit according to DIN 13157 must be available for every employee, and additional first aid kits are required for larger numbers of employees, either large first aid kits according to DIN 13169 (or two first aid kits according to DIN 13157) or additional small first aid kits according to DIN 13157.

In addition, the LifePad® resuscitation aid should be available wherever working conditions require it, such as in company vehicles or next to defibrillators without CPR feedback function.

Survival rates

in case of ventricular fibrillation depending on the onset of measures

Resuscitation measures (such as chest compressions, ventilation, etc.) must be carried out early by persons who are already on site, such as first responders. The purpose of these measures is to create a minimal circulation to prevent brain cells from dying. However, resuscitation alone cannot stop ventricular fibrillation. In this case, only additional and early defibrillation can help.

The success of defibrillation is primarily limited by time. The faster resuscitation measures and defibrillation can be carried out, the higher the chances of success.

Placement/ Carrying of the LifePad®

LifePad® should not be missing next to any first aid kit!

By placing a CPR feedback system next to workplace first aid kits, companies can improve the safety of their employees and save valuable seconds in emergencies that can make the difference between life and death.

The LifePad® features an acoustic and visual feedback system for optimal compression depth and rate. A rhythm signal indicates a frequency of 100 compressions per minute. Compression should be performed with each tone and release after each tone. In addition, a colored LED display helps maintain the recommended compression pressure. Only when all LEDs are fully lit is sufficient pressure applied. This provides concrete guidance and confidence to laypersons in overwhelming emergency situations when performing life-saving resuscitation measures.
