Physio-Control has announced that the company’s HeartSine samaritan PAD 360P (SAM 360P) fully automatic external defibrillator (AED) is now available for sale in the United States, having received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Premarket Approval (PMA).

HeartSine, acquired by Physio-Control in 2015, is the first to receive approval for a new AED product under the FDA PMA regulatory process, which is the most stringent for medical devices in the United States and is a new FDA regulatory requirement for the AED industry.

“As part of our diverse portfolio of AED offerings, the SAM 360P is an intuitive, compact and cost-effective device that assists caregivers – whether at a business, care facility, or a public place – in delivering potentially lifesaving defibrillation in cases of sudden cardiac arrest,” said Ryan Landon, Physio-Control VP/GM, Workplace and Community.

The SAM 360P will complement the SAM 350P and SAM 450P, which also have FDA PMA and are offered in the United States, by providing users with a choice of a fully automatic device, a semi-automatic device, and a device with integrated real-time cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) rate feedback.

The Physio-Control HeartSine samaritan PAD 360P analyzes the cardiac rhythm and automatically delivers an electrical shock to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest in order to restore the heart to normal rhythm. This user-friendly AED provides easy-to-follow visual and audio prompts, including CPR coaching which verbally guides the rescuer through the CPR process. Shock delivery, if required, is fully automatic which means there is no shock button to press.

With a durability rating of IP56, Physio-Control HeartSine AEDs provide the highest level of dust and water ingress protection in the industry, making the device well suited to a variety of usage locations – including places where exposure to the elements presents a challenge.

All Physio-Control HeartSine AED models use the company’s interchangeable Pad-Pak cartridge, which has also received PMA approval. With a single expiration date for both battery and electrodes, the expense of tracking and maintaining accessories with different expiration dates is eliminated. In addition, the Pad-Pak features a rapid replacement mechanism that enables the battery and pads to be replaced easily in seconds.

Along with the SAM 360P, Physio-Control will offer a new HeartSine samaritan PAD Trainer that simplifies CPR and AED training. The new samaritan PAD 360P Trainer guides users through simulated analyses, simulated energy delivery and prompted CPR intervals with a training device which looks like a SAM 360P, is cost effective, and does not deliver defibrillation shocks.
