How Does the LifeVest Work?


This presentation follows the course of events during an arrhythmic episode to show how the LifeVest detects, records and responds to a potentially life-threatening heart rhythm.

During the presentation, you can view the heart rate of the patient as he experiences the arrhythmia, is defibrillated and then returns to a normal rhythm. The presentation's timer illustrates an example of the length of time it takes the LifeVest to defibrillate the patient once he has lost consciousness.
