Cardiac Science’s Powerheart AEDs to be Installed in Airbus Aircraft to Support Heart Emergencies
Cardiac Science Corporation, part of Opto Circuits Group company will now partner with Germany-based Innovint Aircraft Interior GmbH to distribute the automated external defibrillator (AED) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices. These devices will be now installed on the aircraft worldwide.
Innovint is a leader in the global aircraft interior and equipment market and an approved Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) supplier for Airbus.
The Powerheart AED features RescueCoach voice prompts and CPR metronome that help untrained adults deliver CPR of a quality similar to that of trained professionals (as shown in a University of Pennsylvania simulated rescue study). The fully automatic AED analyzes the heart rhythm and delivers the shock automatically, with no button to push and no human intervention.
