Physio-Control Launches HeartSine® Samaritan® Pad 360P Automated External Defibrillator in United States

Physio-Control announced that the company's HeartSine® samaritan® PAD 360P (SAM 360P) fully automatic external defibrillator (AED) is now available for sale in the United States, having received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Premarket Approval (PMA). The SAM 360P will complement the SAM 350P and SAM 450P, which are currently offered in the United States, by providing users with a choice of a fully-automatic device, a semi-automatic device, and a device with integrated real-time CPR rate feedback. The SAM 360P will complement the SAM 350P and SAM 450P, which also have FDA PMA and are offered in the United States, by providing users with a choice of a fully automatic device, a semi-automatic device, and a device with integrated real-time cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) rate feedback. The Physio-Control HeartSine samaritan PAD 360P analyzes the cardiac rhythm and automatically delivers an electrical shock to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest in order to restore the heart to normal rhythm. This user-friendly AED provides easy-to-follow visual and audio prompts, including CPR coaching which verbally guides the rescuer through the CPR process. Shock delivery, if required, is fully automatic which means there is no shock button to press. With a durability rating of IP56, Physio-Control HeartSine AEDs provide the high level of dust and water ingress protection in the industry, making the device well suited to a variety of usage locations including places where exposure to the elements presents a challenge. All Physio-Control HeartSine AED models use the company's interchangeable Pad-Pak cartridge, which has also received PMA approval. With a single expiration date for both battery and electrodes, the expense of tracking and maintaining accessories with different expiration dates is eliminated. In addition, the Pad-Pak features a rapid replacement mechanism that enables the battery and pads to be replaced easily in seconds. Along with the SAM 360P, Physio-Control will offer a new HeartSine samaritan PAD Trainer that simplifies CPR and AED training. The new samaritan PAD 360P Trainer guides users through simulated analyses, simulated energy delivery and prompted CPR intervals with a training device which looks like a SAM 360P, is cost effective, and does not deliver defibrillation shocks.

Physio-Control to Provide Monitor/Defibrillators, Automated External Defibrillators, and On-Site Support at 120th Running of Boston Marathon

Physio-Control was selected to provide LIFEPAK® monitor/defibrillator devices and LIFEPAK and HeartSine® automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for use during the 120thBoston Marathon on April 18, 2016. Ten Physio-Control staff members will also attend the event and be available for equipment support and on-the-spot training. Like stretching before or staying hydrated during a run, quick access to cardiac monitoring and defibrillation is an important precaution for strenuous sporting events and large-scale public events generally. Approximately 30,000 runners and 1 million spectators are expected to attend this year’s marathon, and the safety of race participants and bystanders is the event’s ultimate goal. Many different security measures will be in place during the event and Physio-Control will be part of the larger safety network working behind the scenes.
