A sophisticated semi-automatic defibrillator for adult or paediatric use, inside a lightweight and easy-to-operate system. The HeartSine Samaritan 350P Defibrillator has all the features of the 500P Defibrillator except for the CPR advisor technology. Consists of PAD in carry case with adult Pad-Pak and full 8 year warranty.
WHY IS THE SAMARITAN OUR FIRST RECOMMENDATION?
Simply put, the heart maintains circulation. We all know that without circulation life can’t be sustained. Many years ago there was a breakthrough in medical science when the defibrillator was invented. But these original devices required the intervention of a clinician.
Then Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) were invented. AEDs brought clinical empowerment into the hands of the lay rescuer – what a breakthrough that was!
THE CHAIN OF SURVIVAL:
The Chain of Survival is the unanimously accepted approach to resuscitation. It states the following:
- Early Access (i.e. someone has to get to the person quickly and call 000)
- Early CPR (i.e. someone must perform effective CPR quickly)
- Early Defibrillation (i.e. apply an AED)
- Early Advanced care (i.e. get the victim into advanced medical care quickly)
We applaud your decision to get AEDs. However without the Samaritan you will still have one weak link in the chain of survival.
70% of all bystander CPR is ineffectively performed and this includes both lay and trained rescuers. This is because the rescuer has no way to make clinical determinations as to whether their compressions are actually effective. To make matters worse, there is a huge differential of force required from victim to victim depending on their build. We can’t impart all of this during training because it introduces complexity, and simplicity is the key – any attempt at CPR is better than no attempt, we are taught.
Clinical feedback during CPR, not superficial feedback, is the solution
HeartSine Technologies spent years looking for the answer – and found it. The Samaritan takes clinical readings during CPR, (as opposed to other AEDs that at best give feedback using superficial factors during CPR), and provides the rescuer with feedback based on cardiac output and other clinical factors. So now your clients can be sure to make the weak link in the chain a strong one, and save more lives!
