- Hard Carry Case
Designed to be used with the Defibtech Lifeline AED range, this hard carrying case will ensure that your life-saving device is protected in the most severe environments and locations.
If you’re working in extreme conditions, this Hard Carry Case will protect your Lifeline AED from various forms of exposure, such as dust and water, ensuring your device is kept safe and ready to be used in the event of a cardiac emergency.
The Hard carry case clearly states ‘AED’ on the outer packaging, increasing awareness and visibility, alerting bystanders in the location to the equipment’s presence, should they need it.
How to Use
Transporting AEDs can be dangerous; however transporting an AED in the Hard Carry Case will protect the device from the harshest of elements, ensuring that when you arrive at your destination, your AED is still in full working order.
The additional storage in the case can be used to store vital, life-saving accessories such as electrode pads, batteries and rescue kit items, including a razor, sterile wipes, and a face mask. Storing these items alongside of your Lifeline AED makes for swift retrieval, allowing for a quicker rescue time meaning the victim is receiving the definitive treatment required for cardiac arrest.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
