Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is today the number one killer, and alone accounts for more deaths than traffic accidents, breast cancer, prostate cancer, stroke, AIDS and house fires combined. On average, currently only 5% survive an out of hospital SCA. By having a Defibrillator close at hand for rapid defibrillation, the chances of survival can be greater than 50%.
So simple to operate that a first aider with minimal training can potentially save a life of a co-worker, friend, member of the family or the public.
Calming natural voice instructions coach the first aider through the steps of first aid defibrillation and CPR.
Comprehensive automatic self-tests check all the Heartstart's vital functions on a daily, weekly and monthly schedule, so as to ensure that Heartstart is always ready for emergency life saving.
SMART Analysis; so accurate Heartstart is the only automated external defibrillator approved for use on children as well as adults.
Low energy 150-joule shock. Proven performance in published studies of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Recommended in international resuscitation guidelines as acceptable, safe and useful, and intervention of choice. SMART Pads are able to sense whether they have been removed from the cartridge and placed on the patient's chest to ensure that the voice prompts keep pace with you.
