HeartSine AED Defibrillators
HeartSine was founded in 1997 with the purpose of developing portable automated external defibrillators that were affordable for use in the home and marketplace and that could easily be used by non-medical first responders. The HeartSine Samaritan® PAD (Public Access Defibrillator) was released in 2004.
Designed specifically for public, non-medically-trained personnel use, the HeartSine AED is perfectly suited for every public gathering place, including schools, health clubs, gyms, fitness centers, office buildings, apartment complexes, airports and homes, because you never know when a heart attack or SCA caused by an arrhythmia can happen. With simple, easy-to-use controls and a clear display, the HeartSine AED defibrillator can be used by nearly anyone.
How the HeartSine Samaritan PAD Works
A flashing green status light indicates that the system is operational, and audio prompts guide the user through the process with clear, calm instructions – starting with "Adult Patient" if equipped with the adult Pad-Pak™, and "Child Patient" if equipped with the Pediatric-Pak™. Other prompts from the HeartSine Samaritan AED instruct users throughout the rescue process, while reminding users to "call for medical assistance." The HeartSine system then guides the user through pad application and shock delivery, if required.
HeartSine Samaritan Technology
The HeartSine AED device includes state of the art electrode technology that uses a patented construction method to provide a fast recovery time, which reduces the time between shock and CPR. HeartSine AED electrodes also have a long shelf life of four years and have a very low impedance, which is crucial to successful defibrillation. Electrical impedance is a measure of the opposition to electrical flow.
HeartSine PAD AEDs feature Biphasic technology to assess a patient’s heart rhythm to recommend if a shock should be administered or not.

Don’t wait for an emergency and perhaps even a death to occur before purchasing a HeartSine AED. Be proactive and be prepared. Providing an automated external defibrillator for public gathering places can be just as important as fire extinguishers and smoke detectors.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can happen to anyone, at any time and in any place. It can affect not only older people but children, teenagers and young adults, as well. Emergency medical services need to be performed within minutes of SCA or the victim will die. In the case of sudden cardiac arrest, every minute really does count. If resuscitation and ventricular fibrillation are not performed within five minutes, brain damage can occur. If an AED is not available and is not used within ten minutes, most sudden cardiac arrest victims die. The HeartSine Samaritan PAD can help prevent this tragedy from occurring, and was designed so that non-medical personnel can use it easily and quickly.
