BDM85 - The electronic heart for high-performance defibrillators

Defibrillators can save lives. Whether you’re up against life-threatening arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, or conduction disorders – with the right current pulses, it’s possible to bring the heart back into the right rhythm. In this regard, the task of modern defibrillation technology is to cause as little tissue damage as possible through the targeted use of energy.

Shock360 is a powerful module that can be integrated into defibrillators for emergency operations and the clinical environment. Short charging times and a shock energy of up to 360 joules increase the probability of treatment. With the Pacing Board, Shock360 can also add the important function of transthoracic pacing therapy.

Reliable defibrillation, cardioversion and pacemaker therapy


  • Up to 360 J current-controlled, biphasic defibrillation pulse with impedance compensation
  • Asynchronous and synchronous shock delivery for defibrillation and cardioversion
  • Monophasic rectangular pulse for transcutaneous pacemaker therapy with up to 150 mA at a frequency of up to 300/min
  • Algorithms for VF/VT, asystole and R-spike detection


  • Energies up to 360 J for the treatment of patients with persistent fibrillations
  • All forms of current therapy – defibrillation, cardioversion, pacemaker therapy – in one compact unit
  • Less development effort thanks to a ready-to-use board
  • Specialized integration support from the development of Defi-Monitor systems

The technology

Biphasic defibrillation pulse

  • In the biphasic pulse, a second, smaller pulse with reversed current direction is emitted after the first pulse. This eliminates fibrillations, without unnecessarily damaging the myocardium with current spikes.
  • Continuous measurement of the patient’s resistance controls the individual shock discharge –patients with a high resistance will be defibrillated with a higher current than those with a lower resistance.

Pacemaker therapy

  • Stimulation of bradyarrhythmias requires a much lower current intensity than defibrillation or cardioversion. Therefore, the Shock360 board can be flexibly extended by a plug-on pacing module for the monophasic rectangular pulse.
  • The user can manually control the pacing current intensity and frequency to match individual patient stimulus thresholds.

Areas of use

CAP201 Emergency

Reliable defibrillation for emergency services

  • Lightweight: Thanks to its small size of 170 x 170 x 65 mm and its low weight of less than 800 g, Shock360 is particularly suitable for integration in portable defibrillators.
  • Suitable for use in adverse conditions: The module is designed to be used in temperatures from -20 to +70° C and an air pressure range between 540 and 1100 hPa.
  • Durability: The lifetime is 10 years or a minimum of 10,000 shocks in order to take into account the high stress on professional defibrillators in emergency services and clinics.
CAP201 Clinic

High-end range of functions for use in clinics

Shock360 combines the central components ECG recording and analysis as well as generating and delivering current pulses for defibrillation, cardioversion and cardiac muscle stimulation. This results in numerous treatment options: They range from the treatment of life-threatening arrhythmias in patients requiring resuscitation to the synchronized delivery of cardioversion shocks for treating atrial fibrillation.

The most important technical data of Shock360

  • Size and weight without pacemaker module: 170 x 170 x 40 mm, < 500 g
  • Size and weight with pacemaker module: 170 x 170 x 65 mm, < 800 g
  • Defibrillation pulse adjustable: 0.5 to 360 J
  • Pacemaker pulse adjustable: 0 to 150 mA, 0 to 300/min
  • Supply voltage: 11 to 21 V
  • Communication interface: UART
