Defibrillators save lives

Cardiac Science's proprietary RHYTHMx™ Software and STAR® Biphasic Waveform provide effective technology solutions to treat sudden cardiac arrest.

RHYTHMx Technology is a patented software detection algorithm to accurately and instantly detect abnormal heart rhythms, determine if they are life threatening and when appropriate, facilitate delivery of a live-saving defibrillation shock.

The STAR Biphasic Waveform Technology was developed with each individual's needs in mind, providing customised defibrillation energy for the patient based on the patient's impedance. The patented RescueReady® technology ensures your AED can be counted on when you need it most - during a rescue.

RescueReady Technology®

Ensuring reliable AED Defibrillator operation

One of the most important features of a Cardiac Science AED Defib is its high degree of reliability. Performing the most comprehensive self-testing in the industry ensures Cardiac Science AEDs are "RescueReady" when you need it. When the green RescueReady indicator is lit, Cardiac Science AEDs can be counted on to perform during a rescue.

RHYTHMx™ Technology

Making hard decisions fast

The RHYTHMx technology offers the most advanced, smartest software analysis algorithm in the industry. The RHYTHMx technology is the intelligence behind the Cardiac Science's Powerheart hospital and public access defibrillation products, and is designed to continuously monitor, detect, and advise defibrillation therapy to treat cardiac arrhythmias.

STAR® Biphasic Waveform Technology

Saving minutes saves lives

There are a number of ways an AED Defib can deliver a defibrillation shock. Some AEDs provide the same level of energy each time a shock is delivered. Other AEDs deliver higher levels of energy with each shock, but still administer the same energy level for every patient. The Cardiac Science methodology is that no two patients are alike. That's why Cardiac Science has introduced the proprietary STAR Biphasic technology, providing escalating biphasic energy and customised, variable energy.

This is what the

British Heart Foundation

says about Defibrillators


A defibrillator is a life-saving machine that gives the heart an electric shock in some cases of cardiac arrest. This is called ‘defibrillation' and can save lives.

Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops pumping blood around the body. When someone has a cardiac arrest, defibrillation needs to be prompt.

For every minute that passes chances of survival decrease by 14%.

Research shows that applying a controlled shock within five minutes of collapse provides the best possible chances of survival.

It means defibrillators, also known as automated external defibrillators (AEDs), need to be placed strategically – areas where there is a high incidence of cardiac arrest and where it is difficult for an ambulance to get quickly.

Rural areas, communities with poor road networks or traffic congestion and where large crowds gather are all places where we need defibrillators the most.

Young life-savers

The British Heart Foundation Heartstart UK programmes are run in schools across the UK.

Raising awareness

The British Heart Foundation urge people to apply for a defibrillator and increase the number of devices across the country so that more lives can be saved.

More than 6,000 defibrillators have been placed in the community since we started donating them in 1996. We know of at least 230 lives that have been saved through our investment.

The British Heart Foundation offer cardiac equipment grants to help improve the nations heart health.

How do I use one properly?

It’s very easy to use an AED. The rescuer turns the machine on which then gives ‘voice prompts’, telling the rescuer what to do. The rescuer will be asked to puts the pads in position on the person’s chest. These pads detect electrical activity in the heart and will be able to tell if a shock is needed.

Anyone can use an AED, but it is preferable that people receive training first. It would be better if more people were trained in CPR, which buys time before defibrillation.

Should a defibrillator be kept locked away so it doesn't get damaged or stolen?

The British Heart Foundation have a policy that the AEDs that we fund should not be put in locked or code-restricted cabinets.

Is it a good idea for GP surgeries to be equipped with defibrillators?

Research shows that GP surgeries equipped with defibrillators can improve survival by up to 60 per cent if the patient is treated immediately or soon after entering cardiac arrest.
