The newest offering in the HeartSine® samaritan® PAD family of automated external defibrillators from Physio-Control is the HeartSine samaritan PAD 360P (SAM 360P)! This is the first fully automatic HeartSine AED. Almost identical to the SAM 350P, the two main differences are the fully automatic feature and added motion detection.
Fully automatic AEDs do not require the rescuer to press a shock button in order to deliver a lifesaving shock. This can reduce delays in delivering the shock due to an inexperienced bystander’s natural human tendency to hesitate before pressing the button for fear of harming the victim.
The motion detection feature of the HeartSine SAM 360P detects CPR or other significant motions. If the rescuer continues to perform CPR after a shockable rhythm has been detected, the rescuer is warned “Motion detected. Do not touch the patient.” The AED will then prompt “Shock advised, shock will be delivered in 3…2…1…shock delivered.
Just like the SAM 350P and SAM 450P, this unit comes with an 8-year warranty, the integrated battery/electrode Pad-PakTM with a 4-year life, an audible and visual metronome for CPR rate guidance, and all are the most compact and lightweight AEDs in the industry.
In addition to all these great features, the HeartSine family of AEDs and its Pad-Pak accessories are the first to receive PreMarket (PMA) approval from the FDA! They are the first and only AED manufacturer to receive this approval at the time of this writing.
