The HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P & 360P AEDs from the Advanced CPR Training
Smallest and lightest AED available, extremely water and dust resistant, single electrode pad/battery expiration date to monitor, available in semi-automatic and fully-automatic (no shock button) versions.
Every new AED on the market has a feature or two that makes it different from all the others. Of the standard features on the HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P and Samaritan 360P AEDs, we found the size and weight especially noteworthy. After a comparison of all the AEDs available, our staff agreed the SAM 350P and the SAM 360P AED are no doubt the smallest and lightest models available (weighing in at a mere 2.4 lbs with the Pad-Pak battery inserted!) This is obviously the AED to get if you have to carry one a lot. Put it in a duffle bag or backpack and there’ll be plenty of room left for other stuff to take with you. A few of our staffers even thought of some boat owners who should be all over the HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P or 360P AEDs!
Small and light do NOT equal “fragile,” though. Indeed HeartSine stands behind their SAM 350P and 360P AEDs with an 8-year warranty (compared to 5 years on most other models which is still very significant.) Additionally, they both have a high “MIL” specification rating and an IP Rating of 56. Our conclusion can be summed up in a word: rugged.
Although we’ve gushed over the portability of the HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P AED and the HeartSine samaritan 360P AED, we’ve got to say they’re also great for businesses, schools, churches and any other place you’d deploy an AED.
Another unique feature we found to be quite convenient is the easily replaceable Pad-Pak™. It’s a combination battery pack and adult electrode set in a cartridge form with a long shelf-life. The convenience is you don’t have to keep track of separate expiration dates for electrodes and batteries. All you do is toss the used or expired Pad-Pak and replace it with a new one. And in case you’re curious, there is a pediatric option, too.
Some of our staff had never heard of HeartSine Technologies prior to the release of their Samaritan AED line so we decided to look into the company a little further. The legacy of HeartSine takes us back to the actual invention of the portable defibrillator in 1966 and the key people directly involved. One of those people, Professor John Anderson (MPHIL, Ph.D. Medical Engineering) founded HeartSine Technologies, Inc. in 1997.
As for the technicalities, both the HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P and the HeartSine samaritan 360P AED are low-energy biphasic devices. The AED performs regular electronic self-tests and you can tell it’s ready-to-use by the visual indicator on the face of the device. It also stores up to 90 minutes of patient rescue data for later retrieval. There are no storage or memory cards to buy, but HeartSine’s PAD-SAVER software and cable are required.
Plenty of accessories are available for the HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P and 360P AEDs, too. If you’re thinking about storing the device in an AED cabinet, we recommend the compact-sized line. This AED is small enough that it will look “lost” putting it into a standard size cabinet.
