Zoll AED 3 Fully Automatic Defibrillator
It's vital in emergency situations that the best level of treatment can be provided as quickly as possible to provide the greatest chance of survival. The Zoll AED 3 Fully Automatic Defibrillator provides guidance to rescuers through the use of CPR Help technology with real-time feedback for effective CPR delivery to victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

How Does the Zoll AED 3 Defibrillator Help with CPR?
When a cardiac arrest occurs, around half of the victims will need a shock, but every victim requires cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The AED 3 helps guide rescuers with resuscitating a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. It coaches them quickly and simply through every important step of the rescue process, making it ideal for anybody who does not necessarily provide CPR on a regular basis.
How Does the AED 3 Fully Automatic Defibrillator Work?
The CPR Uni-Padz measure the rate and depth of chest compressions during CPR. The AED immediately tells rescuers how well compressions are being performed, while providing graphical and audible prompts that deliver instantaneous feedback, ensuring rescuers can perform the most effective CPR.
If a rescuer fails to deliver compressions at an adequate depth, an audible and visual prompt to "Push Harder" will be initiated. Once proper depth is reached, it is reinforced with a "Good Compressions" message.
Who Can Use the AED 3 Defibrillator?
The AED 3 Defibrillator has been designed to provide clear CPR instructions for anybody who does not perform CPR on a regular basis and is therefore largely unfamiliar with proper techniques. Sudden cardiac arrest can occur at any time and in any location, and this makes it incredibly likely that emergency CPR will need to be provided by a bystander, typically somebody without a medical background. As such, the AED 3 Defibrillator clearly guides you through CPR on the victim to increase the flow of oxygenated blood to their heart and brain.
Where Can the AED 3 Defibrillator Be Used?
In short, the AED 3 Fully Automatic Defibrillator can be used anywhere, and installing an AED 3 defibrillator in as many locations as possible helps ensure that essential CPR can be performed at a moment's notice by virtually anybody. The AED 3 Defibrillator is also particularly suited to the following environments:
- Hospitals: While hospital staff are often well trained in CPR, there's always a risk that a patient may wander off or take a break from the ward, and they could suffer from a cardiac arrest while away from specially trained medical staff. The AED 3 allows bystanders to perform CPR at a moment's notice.
- Public Spaces: Shopping centres, churches, stately homes, anywhere where members of the public frequent will benefit from installing AED 3 defibrillators on site. This helps to ensure that CPR can be delivered long before the emergency services arrive.
- Schools: As the Uni-padz can be used for both children and adults, the AED 3 is ideal for use in schools where an individual of any age may suffer from a sudden cardiac arrest. The clear instructions are also easy enough to follow, ensuring that CPR can be performed effectively.
- Workplaces: Employers have a duty of care over their employees, but even if staff are trained in First Aid it's understandable that performing CPR can be stressful, and may cause the First Aider to forget some of their training. With the AED 3 Defibrillator to hand, they can be reminded quickly and clearly about how to proceed.
How Easy Is the AED 3 Defibrillator to Use?
As the AED 3 Defibrillator has been designed to enable virtually any bystander to perform potentially life-saving CPR on a victim of sudden cardiac arrest, it can be operated quickly and easily with minimal controls. Powered by battery, the only attachment is for the defibrillator pads, and with Status Indicator, Shock, Child Selection, and On/Off buttons only it eliminates any requirement to fiddle with complicated settings. Please see the operator's manual in the PDF below for a thorough overview of the controls and indicators of the AED 3 Defibrillator.

How Clear is the Guidance from the AED 3 Defibrillator?
The full-colour display screen on the AED 3 Defibrillator produces clear, vivid rescue images for quick and easy guidance. It also displays a CPR cycle timer, and a large colour bar gauge to show CPR compression depth.
Do I Need to Constantly Look at the Screen?
When providing potentially life-saving CPR, it's only natural that you're not going to want to turn your attention away from the victim to look at the screen of the defibrillator. Thankfully, the AED 3 Defibrillator is equipped with audial guidance, with a voice instructing you to pause during heart analysis and issuing alerts regarding the requirement for shock or CPR until the emergency services arrive.
Can Children Receive CPR with the Zoll AED 3?
The Zoll AED 3 can defibrillate children and adults using the CPR Uni-Padz, eliminating the need for a special paediatric electrode pad. When the unit is attached to a child, simply use the Child button on the front of the device to ensure shocks and/or CPR provided is suitable for a child.
How Durable Is the AED 3 Defibrillator?
The AED 3 Defibrillator is incredibly durable. Made to be incredibly tough, the AED 3 features an IP55 rating against dust and water. It also passes the one metre drop test, helping to ensure that it can withstand standard knocks and drops typical in a range of environments.
What Makes the AED 3 Defibrillator So Reliable?
To ensure that the Zoll AED 3 is constantly ready to go, it carries out self-tests on a regular basis to check that every aspect of the defibrillator is functioning correctly. The AED also features a Wi-Fi connection, and if a fault is detected it alerts the Zoll PlusTrac AED Programme Management System, and you'll receive an email immediately to alert you of the fault.
The smart battery reports its power level status to the LCD screen to the defibrillator, while also being able to transmit it over WiFi to your AED Programme Management System. Additionally, both the smart battery and the Uni-padz can last up to five years.
Can I Use the AED 3 Defibrillator for Training?
Where possible, it's important that individuals can be trained on the proper use of the AED 3 Defibrillator, particularly in the work place and where designated First Aiders are present. While the AED 3 Defibrillator itself does not lend itself to training, the Zoll AED 3 Training and Demonstration Uni-Padz and the Zoll AED 3 Heart Rhythm Simulator can be purchased and combined to simulate the AED 3 Defibrillator during use for effective training.
How Quickly Does the AED 3 Defibrillator Charge?
To ensure that shocks can be provided quickly if needed, the Zoll AED 3 features a charge time of less than eight seconds after stopping CPR. This is essential for helping to ensure that those requiring a shock can have the greatest chance of survival.
How Do I Store the AED 3 Defibrillator?
The AED 3 Defibrillator should be stored within easy reach without any obstacles. Storing it in a compatible Zoll storage box or case also helps to prevent it from becoming damaged or misplaced. Available storage options include:
Carry Cases for the AED 3 Defibrillator
Wall Mounts for the AED 3 Defibrillator
Can I Replace Parts of the Defibrillator?
