The European Resuscitation Guidelines 2010 state: " In order to maintain high quality CPR, feedback to rescuers is important. The use of prompt/ feedback devices during CPR will enable immediate feedback to rescuers."
The HeartSine Samaritan PAD 500P Defibrillator with CPR advisor is a complete solution.
Unlike similar devices on the market, which just give feedback on the pressure of compressions applied to a device placed on the chest, the HeartSine PAD 500P uses an Impedence Cardiogram (ICG) to accurately assess CPR effectiveness.
The ICG measures electrical conductivity through the chest cavity and then the HeartSine PAD 500P relates that measurement to blood flow thus monitoring the effectiveness of chest compressions and delivering immediate verbal and visual feedback:
The electric "shock" delivered by a defibrillator is one very important step to improve the victim's chance of survival, however CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) must be carried out as part of the chain of survival to ensure the best outcome. No matter if you are a layperson or a professional rescuer: 70% of all CPR is carried out inadequately!
The HeartSine PAD 500P Defibrillator has been specifically designed to meet the challenge of assisting in the provision of effective CPR alongside life saving defibrillation and so help improve patient outcomes!
The Heartsine 500P is suitable for use on adults and children.
For children younger than 8 years or weighing less than 25 kg (55 lbs), a Pediatric-Pak™ is available as an extra option.
