Since 1998, HeartSine has been working to continually develop technology and products for the treatment of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). HeartSine is the pioneer of clinically advanced automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for the workplace, public access and home markets.
HeartSine's samaritan PAD range of defibrillators are lightweight and boast the highest IP rating available on the defibrillator market. The easy-to-follow graphic interface allows responders of all levels to act during an emergency, with confidence.
HeartSine, now part of Stryker, remain extremely vigilant and continue to invent clinically advanced AED technology designed for use by rescuers of all skill levels. The addition of Gateway connectivity makes defibrillator maintenance easier than ever.
A defibrillator combined with effective CPR, is the only definitive treatment for people who suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Delivering treatment within 3-5 minutes increases the chance of survival from 6% to 74%.
Why do electrode pads need replacing?
Depending on the make and model of your defibrillator, the electrode pads have a shelf life ranging from 1-5 years.
If used beyond the expiration date, the gel covering the pads are likely to be ineffective in adhering to the skin to analyse the heart and deliver a shock if one is required.
Why does a defibrillator need a replacement battery?
Batteries have a shelf life of 2-7 years depending on what make and model your defibrillator is.
Batteries power the unit to carry out regular self-tests to ensure your defibrillator remains in working order, as well as the ability to deliver a potentially life-saving shock to a person in cardiac arrest.
Whether or not you have purchased your defibrillator or accessories from us previously, we can still remind you when your products are coming up for expiration when you register your expiry dates as part of our FREE Battery and Pad Reminder Service.
