How Does the LifeVest Wearable Defibrillator Work?

This presentation follows the course of events during an arrhythmic episode to show how the LifeVest® wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD) is designed to detect, record and respond to a potentially life-threatening rapid heart rhythm.

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