Defibrillation and CPR feedback

Several out-of-hospital-cardiac-arrest studies show a significant percentage of people are not in a shockable rhythm. Other studies indicate CPR performed by trained and lay rescuers may be sometimes ineffective. How do we ensure the best possible treatment for both those cases? The HeartSine® samaritan PAD 500P with integrated CPR Advisor™ is quick to shock and is the ONLY AED on the market that provides real-time CPR feedback on Rate & Force without the need for any special sensor or puck. Watch this video to see how we get rescuers to “Push Faster” , “Push Harder” and “Good Compressions”. Heartsine’s Advanced CPR Advisor™ Technology HeartSine® CPR Advisor™ for the HeartSine samaritan PAD automated external defibrillator (AED) is a revolutionary technology that provides real-time visible and audible feedback to a rescuer on the depth and rate of CPR compressions

The venues we use especially in the Sydney region are clubs, as such, they have the right to set their own restrictions around who can and cannot enter the facility. These restrictions are totally out of our control and not always in line with Health Guidelines. We recommend you contact the venue you are booked to attend the day before the course and check that you are not restricted based on your individual situation. We can transfer your registration free of charge (if due to COVID venue restriction)  only if we are notified the day before a course. Normal cancellation policies will apply if we are not contacted prior to the event.

We are taking all required steps to ensure everyone’s safety including removing tables, no breaths required when doing CPR, ample cleansing wipes, refusal of attendance for any participants presenting with flu or cold symptoms, or those that should be self-isolating. 

Our standing request for unwell students: If you are unwell with any type of “cold or flu” we will NOT ALLOW YOU TO ENTER THE COURSE.
