Cardiac Science's new automated external defibrillator, now in its fifth generation, enables both professional rescuers and first-time users to swiftly provide effective, life-saving therapy to aid a person who has suffered sudden cardiac arrest. The Powerheart G5's major features include:
- Ease of Use. Even first-time users can successfully perform each step of a rescue with intuitive, user-paced instruction. Dual-language options enable users to change from one of two languages during a rescue.
- Advanced Patient Care. The G5 automatically assesses the patient's therapy needs and delivers customized shock at an appropriate energy level. The G5 is the first AED to combine fast shock times and customized energy delivery, delivering a higher energy, post-CPR shock in less than 10 seconds (typically) for the best chance at a favorable outcome.
- Reliability. The G5 features military-grade construction and an IP55 rating for use in harsh and demanding environments.
The product has FDA clearance and will be launched in fall 2014 in the U.S. An international version was previously launched in select EU countries. Visit www.cardiacscience.com.
