HeartSine Technologies has launched the new Samaritan PAD 360P (SAM 360P), a fully automatic automatic external defibrillator (AED).
The new AED is based on samaritan PAD 350P, and is designed to analyse the heart rhythm and offer electrical shock to a sudden cardiac arrest victim to bring back the heart to normal rhythm.
The new user-friendly SAM 360P offers users a choice of either a fully automatic or semi-automatic device.
It also provides easy-to-follow visual and audio prompts such as CPR coaching, which verbally guides the rescuer through the CPR process.
SAM 360P uses samaritan PAD technology and self-compensating output pulse envelope (SCOPE) technology to evaluate rhythm and maximise effective shock delivery.
HeartSine CEO Declan O'Mahoney said: "We work closely with our customers to ensure that our products include the features they want most.
"Because the auto-shock feature is required in some markets, we expanded our product offering to include the SAM 360P, which nicely complements our existing product line."
The company said that all samaritan PAD models feature Pad-Pak cartridge that offers battery and electrodes for the device.
In addition, the company is launching its new samaritan PAD Trainer TRN-360, which simplifies CPR and AED training.
TRN-360 will help users by guiding through simulated analysis, energy delivery and prompted cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) intervals.
The company said that the new samaritan PAD 360P is available immediately in several countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The new product will be rolled out to additional countries after securing regulatory approvals from local authorities.
