iDefibrillate is an accurate simulator of an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) designed to be used for CPR training and general familiarization.

An AED is a device used to provide a shock of electricity to somebody in cardiac arrest (having a heart attack). It is the definitive treatment and knowing how to use one is an important skill for firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, nurses, doctors and with the prevalence of AEDs in public locations the general public.

This app is designed to give people a chance to see, hear and interact with an AED. If you have ever been curious as to how one operates now is your chance.

Combine an iPod Touch or iPhone, iDefibrillate and a pair of electrode pads and you've got an inexpensive realistic training environment for practicing CPR with AED without the need for costly AED trainers.

Not useable as a trainer.

Purchased this as a training aid for CPR classes. What the description fails to mention is that there is no sound. Fine as a free app for self review, not worth paying for.

Developer Response ,

Please contact me directly ( I'd like to figure out why you aren't getting any audio since that shouldn't be happening.

Great potential

I am a CPR instructor and This is an awesome idea ... it does need to have legit voice prompts & metronome though . It would be cool to give students an option to download this during class and that would be the aed they use for training.. I would buy an Instructors package or subscription for that option..

Developer Response ,

The voice prompts in the app are based on the Lifepak 500 AED. I'd love to know more about what you mean be legit voice prompts.

I agree that a metronome would be useful so hopefully that will be make it in a future update.

App does almost everything I need. Would like to have a metronome sound (100 bpm) for students to follow along during the CPR portion.
