Technology that is 10 years ahead of the rest - Why you need an AED

AED for CPR Heartsine

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.
Why are good compressions so important?
  • 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
I thought a defibrillator got the heart going again?
  • 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.
