Technology that is 10 years ahead of the rest - Why you need an AED
Why you need an AED?
- Every 20 minutes some one in Australia dies of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
- Why calling an Ambulance is not enough
- For every minute of delay in Sudden Cardiac Arrest, there is a 10% decrease in chance of survival
Why specially a HeartSine Samaritan 500P?
- Without a HeartSine Samaritan 500P in particular, your AED could leave you vulnerable in terms of one of the important links in the Chain of Survival – CPR.
- The HeartSine Samaritan 500P in the ONLY device that can ensure that your compressions are in fact effective - and specific to each individual victim too.
- All other AED devices can not provide victim specific information
- There is a vast difference of required pressure between victims (between 10kg pressure and 70kg pressure for adults), which is the downfall of older technology.
How does it do this?
- Using patented ICG technology which has been clinically tested in 180 real life cardiac arrests with 95% correlation to good compressions.
Is there any other AED that can offer equivalent technology?
- Despite disguised claims, no. There is no substitute for this life-saving technology.
- The brain and other organs desperately need oxygen to function. Blood carries the oxygen to these organs. Once the heart has stopped, you have to manually get it pumping
- Inadequate chest compressions simply do not succeed in distributing the blood through to the tiny blood vessels in these organs
- A defibrillator is one of the 4 links in the chain of survival. For example after the first shock is given, you administer 2 minutes of CPR before delivering another shock if the heart beat has not returned
- Or, if the defibrillator does not shock the victim (a non-shockable rhythm) good compressions may maintain the victim for longer, possibly until emergency services arrive.
