Cardiac Science Inc. has announced that GE Healthcare has initiated marketing and distribution of Cardiac Science’s line of Powerheart®-branded automated external defibrillators and fully-automatic in-hospital defibrillator-monitors in the United States and Canada.
Powerheart AED G3 Automatic is described by the company:
The revolutionary Powerheart AED G3-Automatic simplifies the rescue process by eliminating the need to press a shock button. All that you have to do is attach the device to a person in cardiac arrest. Once the defibrillation pads are attached to the patient, the device detects the person’s heart rhythm, analyzes the rhythm using the patented RHYTHMx® software, and if a life-threatening rhythm is detected, instructs the user to stand clear and automatically delivers a defibrillation shock.
