Cardiac Science

Cardiac Science has been at the forefront of incorporating advanced technology in its AEDs. This includes features like adaptive escalating energy (which adjusts the shock delivery based on the patient's needs), and integration with emergency response systems.

Cardiac Science has its origins in the early 1990s. Over the years, it has grown through various mergers and acquisitions, integrating technologies and expertise from different entities in the field of cardiology and resuscitation.

Powerheart® AEDs are a popular series of AEDs from Cardiac Science. Powerheart® AEDs are known for their advanced features like automatic self-testing, clear voice prompts, and rescue readiness. They are designed to be easy to use for laypeople in emergency situations.

Powerheart G5

The Powerheart G5 represents a balance between advanced technology and user accessibility, making it a valuable tool in public access defibrillation programs and in professional healthcare settings. For the most current and detailed information, including any updates or new features, it's best to refer directly to Cardiac Science's resources or contact them directly.

Here are some key features and aspects of the Powerheart G5:

  1. Ease of Use: The Powerheart G5 is designed to be user-friendly, with intuitive operation that makes it accessible for people without medical training. This includes clear voice and text prompts to guide the user through each step of the defibrillation process.
  2. Dual-Language Capability: One of the unique features of the G5 is its ability to switch between two pre-set languages during use. This can be particularly helpful in multilingual environments.
  3. Rescue Ready® Technology: This feature ensures that the AED is always ready for use. The device performs regular self-checks of its battery, hardware, software, and pads to ensure functionality.
  4. RHYTHMx® Technology: The Powerheart G5 uses advanced algorithms to analyze the patient's heart rhythm and determine if a shock is necessary. This technology helps in providing effective treatment.
  5. Customizable Escalating Energy: The device can adjust the defibrillation energy based on what's needed for each patient. If the first shock does not successfully restart the heart, the G5 can escalate the energy level for subsequent shocks.
  6. CPR Assistance: The Powerheart G5 often includes CPR feedback devices that guide rescuers in delivering effective chest compressions and breaths, a critical component of successful resuscitation.
  7. Rugged Design: It's built to be rugged and durable, which is suitable for use in various environments, including outdoor settings or harsh conditions.
  8. Battery and Pad Integration: The AED has a long-lasting battery, and its pads are integrated with the device, ensuring that they are always ready for use. Replacement dates for both are coordinated for easy maintenance.
  9. Data Management: After an event, the Powerheart G5 can provide detailed event data, which can be important for emergency medical services and for reviewing the response process.
  10. Certifications and Compliance: The Powerheart G5 is designed to meet various international and regional standards and regulations for medical devices.
