How to use your CellAED® on an Adult

Mastering the Use of CellAED® on Adults

If you have experience with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), you’ll find some differences when using your CellAED®. This guide highlights these variations and provides step-by-step instructions on effectively using your CellAED® on an adult.

Understanding CellAED® Differences

Firstly, it’s important to note that the CellAED® is designed for single-patient use and can deliver multiple shocks, but it requires replacing after use on one person. Secondly, it’s a fully automatic defibrillator, which means it analyses the heart rhythm and automatically delivers a shock if necessary. Thirdly, the pad placement for CellAED® differs slightly from traditional AEDs. Instead of placing the lateral pad under the armpit, it should be placed in line with and below the left nipple.

Steps for Using Your CellAED® on an Adult

There are several critical steps for using your CellAED® on an adult:

  • Call emergency services immediately upon recognising an unresponsive person.
  • Start CPR and, if possible, have someone else prepare the CellAED®.
  • Remove your CellAED® from its case by pulling the marked tab and peeling off the red tape.
  • Activate your CellAED® by following the Snap Peel Stick™ method.

Pad Application and Analysis

After snapping the device in half, separate the pads to extend the cable and completely peel away the protective liner. Apply one pad to the top right-hand side of the chest and the other to the bottom left-hand side, ensuring they stick firmly to the skin.

Special Considerations

When applying the CellAED®:

  • Be mindful of pacemakers, which should not impede pad placement.
  • In the case of children over 10 kilos, follow adult pad placement unless it impedes chest compressions.

Responding to CellAED® Instructions

Listen and follow the voice instructions from your CellAED®. If using on an adult, ignore the prompts for infant mode and wait for the device to recognise it’s in adult mode.

Administering CPR and Shock Delivery

When instructed to start CPR, use the heel of your hands for compressions in time with the metronome beeps. The CellAED® will guide you through the therapy cycle, advising on when to deliver shocks and when to perform CPR.

Continuing Care Until Help Arrives

Continue to follow the voice instructions, providing CPR and rescue breaths until emergency services arrive. If the patient shows signs of recovery, place them in the recovery position, keeping the CellAED® attached until professional help takes over.

Conclusion: Preparing for Effective Adult Resuscitation

By following these guidelines and using your CellAED® correctly on an adult, you increase the chances of a positive outcome in emergency situations. Regular practice and familiarity with your device are key to being prepared when it matters most.
