AED/ Defibrillator

Really necessary??

what is the need
What is the need?
  • Many people lose sight of the fact that SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) is the biggest killer of all in the Western World.
  • In Australia almost 30,000 people each year die from SCA. This is more than 10 times as many deaths than those that occur in traffic accidents.
  • Over 80% of these events take place in an out-of-hospital setting.
  • For every 1 minute of delay there is a 10% decrease in chance of survival
  • Ambulance response times are about 12 – 15 minutes and more for a remote location.

what is the solution
What is the solution?
  • A Public Access Defibrillator (AED) on site and effective CPR is the simple solution. Immediate access to an AED could prevent many of these deaths.
what about liability
What about Liability?
  • Worldwide, resuscitation council guidelines have been written to protect the lay rescuer.
  • In Australia the Good Samaritan Act further protects the lay rescuer from liability.
  • There is more risk of liability if an employer chooses to ignore the need to have an AED.
  • There have been successful cases of prosecution for NOT having an AED on site.
  • As public awareness of the life-saving benefit of having an AED increases, so does the Duty of Care to provide an AED for employees and members.
what about training
What about Training?
  • Firstly, AED’s have been developed for use by lay rescuers. That means they can be operated by someone that has had minimal or no training.
  • The voice prompts are so simple that even with no prior experience, you could save a life.
  • As stated by the Australian Resuscitation Council, any attempt at resuscitation is better than no attempt.
  • However it is recommended in the interest of the best outcomes that employees undertake training.
  • A training device that resembles the real device is available for your first aid trainer to incorporate the specific device in any first aid course conducted for employees.

Introducing the HeartSine Samaritan 500P More than an AED/Defibrillator

Technology that is 10 years ahead of the rest


There is a saying, when you need one any defib is a good defib. But technology has moved on and we are about to challenge that statement. The Chain of Survival (as endorsed by the Australian Resuscitation Council, and Resuscitation Councils worldwide) includes 4 essential links:

HeartSine Samaritan 500P More than a defib


1. Early Access

2. Early CPR

3. Early Defibrillation

4. Early Advanced Care

HeartSine Samaritan 500P More than a defib


Early Access (1st link) and Early Advanced Care (4th link) speak for themselves.

  • Early Defibrillation (3rd link) involves having a defibrillator on site.
  • But the whole thing could fall down on one weak link in the chain, Early CPR (2nd link)

HeartSine Samaritan 500P More than a defib


Clinical studies have shown that adequate compression force varies greatly between adult victims, from 10kg force to 70kg force.

  • Therefore any CPR device that provides feedback based on pressure will be unable to accommodate these differences, and feedback will not be appropriate.
  • Depth alone is extremely difficult to judge in the anxiety of the moment.
  • Although any attempt at CPR is better than no attempt, it is a fact that 70% of all CPR is ineffectively performed

HeartSine Samaritan 500P Why is it so hard to do good CPR?


HeartSine Samaritan 500P Is it really so important to do good CPR?

  • By performing effective Compressions, you are getting oxygen that is in the bloodstream to reach the brain and other vital organs.
  • Otherwise the victim will deteriorate rapidly, greatly reducing any chance of survival.
  • Often in a cardiac arrest, the heart will be in a non-shockable rhythm. Good as an AED is, that means it CAN DO NOTHING!
  • HeartSine’s patented ICG technology ensures that your compressions are actually effective for the specific victim
  • This means that you make every vital second of your rescue efforts count.

Provides real-time feedback as to your effectiveness in performing CPR.

  • Not just a gimmick that monitors the pressure you are applying to the chest.
  • It tells the rescuer whether to push harder, and once the compressions are effective, whether to push faster or slower.
  • It does this by a new patented technology that has been developed during real cardiac arrests in the UK (Clinical papers available).

So, to sum up this unique CPR feedback….


Remember, the defib will look after the shock, but you have to look after the CPR – and without the HeartSine Samaritan 500P, there is a 70% chance your compressions will be ineffective.

  • If you stint now, you may live with the consequences tomorrow.

servicing maintenance
Servicing & Maintenance
  • The battery and pads are in one single replaceable cassette, called a PAD-PAK. The PAD-PAK has a 4 year expiry from date of manufacture. This means there is only one consumable component and only one expiry date to monitor.
  • As the device conducts its own weekly self-check, there is no user servicing required, apart from a weekly glance to confirm that the green ‘rescue ready’ LED is flashing. In the unlikely event of the self-test identifying a fault, the red LED will illuminate. As soon as you notify us, a loan device will be sent to you while the device is investigated.
pad pak replacement program
PAD-PAK Replacement Program
  • You have the option of us monitoring of the expiry date of your PAD-PAK. Before one of your PAD-PAKs expire, we will send you a reminder that you should re-order a PAD-PAK. Of course if you use your device in an event you will need to initiate an order for a new PAD-PAK.
minimal ongoing costs
Minimal ongoing costs
  • Apart from being ahead of the pack in the ability to save lives, the HeartSine Samaritan is one of the most cost effective devices to own. In fact the on-going costs are negligible. There are no further costs for the first 4 years from date of manufacture. Over the first 8 years, for example, your average annual maintenance costs could be expected to be around $25.00 pa (or $50.00 pa if you wish to have a spare PAD-PAK at all times).

Adult PAD-PAK (Age 8 – Adult)

  • PAD-PAK-03

Paediatric PAD-PAK (Age 1-8)

  • PAD-PAK-04
options accessories
Options & Accessories
  • We have a range of cost effective accessories that are strongly recommended:
  • AED Wall cabinet with approved Australian Resuscitation Council signage, for easy identification of defibrillator
  • AED Prep Kit options with items such as cutting shears to cut clothing, razor, etc
  • AED wall sign
  • Instructional video
  • Training device
