iDefibrillate is an accurate simulator of an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) designed to be used for CPR training and general familiarization.

An AED is a device used to provide a shock of electricity to somebody in cardiac arrest (having a heart attack). It is the definitive treatment and knowing how to use one is an important skill for firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, nurses, doctors and with the prevalence of AEDs in public locations the general public.

This app is designed to give people a chance to see, hear and interact with an AED. If you have ever been curious as to how one operates now is your chance.

Combine an iPod Touch or iPhone, iDefibrillate and a pair of electrode pads and you've got an inexpensive realistic training environment for practicing CPR with AED without the need for costly AED trainers.

Ratings and Reviews



App does almost everything I need. Would like to have a metronome sound (100 bpm) for students to follow along during the CPR portion.


Not useable as a trainer.

Purchased this as a training aid for CPR classes. What the description fails to mention is that there is no sound. Fine as a free app for self review, not worth paying for.

Developer Response

Please contact me directly ( I'd like to figure out why you aren't getting any audio since that shouldn't be happening.


Needs sound and connector for pads

I had pads but no way to connect them . It does not tell you you have to buy the $25 connector.
