Treatment Equipment

The defibrillator is used in resuscitation. It delivers an electrical shock to a heart which has gone into life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia such as ventricular fibrillation in order to restore a normal heart rhythm. In recent years, the AED (automated external defibrillator) has become widely available in public places. Nihon Kohden is the only company in Japan that develops and manufactures biphasic AEDs and defibrillators for hospital and ambulance use.
We also import a wide range of treatment devices into Japan, including pacemakers, vagal nerve stimulators, ventilators and anesthesia machine.
