Response time is critical to survival rates when a person suffers an episode of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). The condition often strikes without warning as the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. With the pumping action disrupted, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. SCA can be fatal within minutes if not treated which is what makes it a leading cause of death worldwide.
Having an automated external defibrillator (AED) close at hand greatly increases the chances of survival from SCA. The HeartSine samaritan PAD 350p Defibrillator is a compact and easy-to-use lifesaving technology. AEDs can analyse and restore the heart to normal rhythm in victims of SCA by delivering an electrical shock. The HeartSine 350p AED is designed to be user-friendly with visual and audio prompts to guide the rescuer from pad application to shock delivery, if required.

In making a decision as to which Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to purchase, you need to carefully consider the 4 links in the internationally accepted chain of survival – otherwise your investment might be an unwise one. These links are:
- Early Access – (i.e. someone has to be there to help)
- Early CPR
- Early Defibrillation
- Early Advanced Care – (i.e. the victim needs to receive hospitalisation).
