The HeartSine® samaritan® PED includes one set of adult and one set of pediatric PAD-PAKs. PAD Public Access Defibrillator (or Automatic External Defibrillator) is an easy-to-use medical device especially designed for public access use, to administer lifesaving treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
No complex displays or controls. A flashing green STATUS light indicates system is operational.
The HeartSine® samaritan® PAD prompts you visually and audibly with clear, calm instructions – starting with “Adult Patient if equipped for adult Pad-Pak™, and “Child Patient if equipped with pediatric-pak™. Other prompts instruct users throughout the rescue process, while reminding users to “call for medical assistance. The system then guides the user through pad application to shock delivery if required.
Electrode pads are contained in an innovative Pad-Pak™ or Pediatric-Pak™ which are accessible by pulling the green tab.
Pads are accessible with the unit in the storage case (supplied with each unit).
The Adult (Gray) Pad-Pak™ is for patients >8 years & 55 lbs. The Pediatric-Pak™ (Pink) is for patients 1-8 years & <55 lbs. Either cartridge can be used with the new HeartSine® samaritan® PAD (Model 300P). Note: Pediatric-Pak™ cannot be used on earlier models.
When electrode pads are applied, the system automatically assesses the patient to determine if a shock is required. If not, the unit will prompt the rescuer to begin CPR (see demonstration).
Verbal and visual prompts guide the rescuer when to touch and when not to touch the patient. If it is determined that a shock is required, the Shock Button illuminates.
A CPR tone and flashing icon coach the rescuer in delivering chest compressions according to ERC 2005 guidelines- 100 compressions per minute – for 2 minute intervals.
