About Outdoor Use
The equipment for outdoor applications requires special thought and consideration.
Temperature: Most AEDs should be used above 32 degrees, and some cannot be stored below 50 degrees. Defibtech pads can be stored down to -50 degrees. Some AEDs are rendered inoperable if stored below 40 degrees or damaged if it gets below freezing, but not the Lifeline unit.
Humidity: The Defibtech unit can operate from 5% to 95% relative humidity that is non-condensing, the broadest range of any AED. In the south we reach 100% often as evidenced by the dew that forms. The only way to control humidity is use an air tight case with fresh silica gel. If the case is closed in an office at 70 degrees and cooled outside to 50 degrees you will get condensation without silica gel. Without a window to inspect the AED daily, you would need hundreds of silica gel packets to control humidity. Our proprietary Life OnBoard hard case allows the case to be sealed yearly and inspected daily without additional silica gel.
High Shock Load: With the durable foam padding, the rugged outdoors cannot harm this unit. Carry it with the football team equipment, or on the floor of an off road 6 X 6 bucket truck and the unit still remains ready to save your life.
Why Are We In Business?
This story comes from an American manufacture that brought over from Japan, one of the developers of the kaizen methodology. While traveling from plant to plant to introduce kaizen they spoke through a translator. They discovered they had both been fighter pilots. The American had flown in Vietnam and the Japanese had been a Zero pilot in WW2. He related a story of how his squadron had shot down an American plane. Everyone wanted to see the wrecked American plane. After several days of urging, the Japanese squadron commander got a bus and took the squadron to the crash site. Upon viewing the wreckage, the Japanese pilots became very dejected. They saw that the American pilot seat was made of armored steel and not bamboo like their Zero. They immediately realized that the Americans gave up a little cost and performance because they valued their pilots. We believe most organizations value their employees and customers enough to spend a little for an AED and CPR training. The AEDs we have placed save a life every week!
