There is nothing like the HeartSine Samaritan 500P public access defibrillator with CPR advisor technology.
The HeartSine Samaritan 500P Defibrillator contains technology that determines electrically through the defibrillation pads, whether your compressions are in fact effective.
So not only will voice prompts guide you through the process of defibrillation (like all AED’s), but this device will tell you to “Push Harder” or whether you are doing “Good Compressions” -all based on real cardiac output (real blood flow).
With the HeartSine Samaritan 500P Defibrillator, you make every second of your rescue efforts count. There are people alive today that have been saved by the 500p…and others who have the comforting knowledge that they did everything they could.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any further questions at all.
The 500P Defibrillator incorporates all of the standard features of the 350P Defibrillator (PAD-350P)
New changes to Australian Resuscitation Guidelines recommends the use of prompt devices to improve CPR quality. The 500P is outstanding in this regard as it provides real-time feed-back while the rescuer is performing chest compressions. It instructs the rescuer to push harder or softer, faster or slower, and when compressions are being done correctly it will say good compressions. All of this feedback is based on real time Impedence Cardiography (ICG) measurements. That means it is taking determining clinically whether the rescuer is getting the heart to pump blood around the body. No other AED can do this. This advancement in technology ensures that your chest compressions actually achieve cardiac output, or blood flow. This is so important because your brain consumes 20% of your body’s oxygen even though it only comprises 2% of your body mass). So in a few minutes the brain has exhausted the oxygen supply from the arteries and capillaries around it. Thats why your chest compressions need to be good – to get some more blood to the brain and other vital organs. The Samaritan 500P does not just work on an average force or pressure like other CPR feedback devices. It provides victim specific information to ensure your chest compressions are sufficient to produce vital blood flow to the brain.
