The standalone Trainer VIEW, model number DDU-2000TR, is a dedicated training system used by AED training participants to learn how to be prepared for a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) emergency. Training class participants are instructed in the use of an AED as part of a standard rescue protocol in the event someone suffers SCA.
It is externally similar to a fully-functional Defibtech DDU-2000 Series Automated External Defibrillator (AED), known as the Lifeline VIEW and the Lifeline ECG, in form and operation but all rubberized exterior surfaces are red over-molding, instead of black, to clearly distinguish the unit as a training device that cannot be used to defibrillate a real patient. The reusable training pads and rechargeable battery pack have red packaging and labels to distinguish them as being for training use only.
On power-up, the Trainer will default to operating in “AED Video Mode” which displays visual prompts throughout the rescue scenarios. The Trainer can be put into either “AED ECG Mode,” which provides a non-diagnostic display of the heart rhythm, or “Manual Mode,” which allows overriding of the automatic features of the Trainer.
A remote control is provided with the Trainer VIEW. It allows the instructor to control training exercises and functions from a distance. Trainer AEDs are factory programmed to function in Semi-Automatic mode, but can be configured with the remote control to operate in either Semi-Automatic or Fully Automatic mode. In addition, the remote control can be used to select from six representative training rescue scenarios.
