Atlanta, GA, September 19, 2017 — Cardiac Science announced its donation of five Powerheart® G5 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to furnish Cristo Rey Jesuit Atlanta High School’s new facilities at 222 Piedmont Avenue.

The Powerheart G5 AED is a good product that can be life-saving. They’re fully automatic and easy to use in case of an emergency.”
