Defibtech Ships 50,000th AED in DDU-100 Series

AED manufacturer Defibtech, LLC (Guilford, Conn.) announced Aug. 21 that it has shipped more than 50,000 of its DDU-100 Series AEDs. The defibrillators are marketed under the brand names Lifeline™ and ReviveR™.

"Our defibrillators have saved numerous lives around the world," Defibtech CEO Dr. Glenn W. Laub said in the news release. "When we started the company, AEDs were too expensive and intimidating. Our mission has been to make AEDs more affordable and accessible so that these life-saving devices are available for use everywhere and by everyone. While today's milestone is important from a business perspective, it's even more gratifying to know that we have tens of thousands of units ready to save lives if sudden cardiac arrest occurs." Laub is chairman of cardiac surgery and director of the Heart Hospital at St. Francis Medical Center in Trenton, N.J.

The company's units have been selected for statewide deployment programs and are deployed in the United States, Canada, Europe, China, India, the Middle East, other parts of Asia, Australia, South America, and Africa. "Because our defibrillators provide high quality, durability, reliability, and value, they are often chosen in situations where large numbers of units are needed," said Defibtech President Gintaras Vaisnys, who co-founded the company with Laub. He said a New Jersey program placed more than 3,000 AEDs in the state's police and fire vehicles, and thousands have been put into service in large-scale corporate deployments.
