For the past 13 years, Cardiac Science has collaborated with DXE Medical, the parent company of AED.com, to help emergency medical services and fire departments save lives.
This work has paid off as AED.com has named Cardiac Science its vendor of the month for July 2012, and is offering specials on select Cardiac Science products throughout the month. Cardiac Science works with AED.com to provide Powerheart G3 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to markets including EMS/fire departments, physician offices, clinics, hospitals, and a wide range of schools, recreation centers, and public places served through community public access to defibrillation (PAD) programs.
“Cardiac Science has done a great job in educating the public about the importance of AED placement in our communities and schools,” said Matthew Spencer, president of AED.com. “You know that a company has done the heavy lifting when customers ask for the Powerheart AED by name.”
Spencer noted that when the gym where he works out needed an AED, he donated a Cardiac Science device. A recent AED.com blog post featured Nathan Hysmith, an AED.com employee who chose a Powerheart G3 for his personal vehicle.
“Cardiac Science is proud to receive this recognition from a partner company that focuses on every aspect of AEDs, from public awareness to AED sales and training,” said Cardiac Science CEO Neal K. Long. “We value our relationship with AED.com.”
The full statement from AED.com noted that “the Powerheart G3 has several important features that distinguish it from other AEDs. It has non-polarized electrodes, meaning that the defibrillator pads can be placed in either position on the victim’s chest. The device also checks the AED’s main components (battery, pads, hardware and software) on a daily basis. Most devices do not check the readiness of the pads, which is crucial to the rescue. The Powerheart G3 has a CPR Rescue Coach with metronome that guides the user through performing CPR.”
It also pointed out that, “Cardiac Science’s STAR biphasic technology measures the patient’s impedance and calculates the proper amount of energy for the shock to be delivered. This feature is specific to Cardiac Science AEDs and tailors the rescue to the body type of the victim, rather than a one-size-fits-all shock that is the same for a 80-pound girl and a 300-pound man. The device and battery warranties are among the longest in the industry: 7 years on the device, 4 years on the battery.”
