Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly stops pumping blood effectively due to a malfunction of the heart’s electrical system. Often victims of SCA have no prior warning signs or symptoms. SCA also can occur in people with previously diagnosed heart conditions. Survival from SCA depends on immediate and effective
cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The use of an external defibrillator within the first few minutes of a collapse can greatly improve a patient’s chance of survival. Heart attack and SCA are not the same, though sometimes a heart attack can lead to an SCA. If you are experiencing symptoms of a heart attack (chest pain, pressure, shortness of breath, tight feeling in the chest or elsewhere in the body), immediately seek medical attention.
Sinus Rhythm and Ventricular Fibrillation
HeartSine Technologies’ CPR Advisor™ uses revolutionary ICG technology to provide real-time visible and audible feedback to the rescuer on the quality of compressions during a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). HeartSine will showcase this patented technology which requires no additional leads or external sensors.
The normal heart rhythm, known as sinus rhythm, creates electrical activity resulting in coordinated contraction of the heart muscle. This generates normal blood flow around the body.
Because Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is crucial to deliver oxygenated blood to the body’s vital organs, CPR Advisor for the HeartSine® samaritan® PAD automated external defibrillator provides accurate feedback to ensure the rescuer performs effective CPR in line with AHA and ERC guidelines.
To measure the quality of CPR compressions, CPR Advisor uses only the defibrillator electrodes — not a third sensor — to detect changes in patient impedance, in real time. These changes in impedance are used to measure the rate and force of compressions which correlate to a number of vital signs.
HeartSine will demonstrate at Medica its complete range of samaritan PAD defibrillators, which includes the samaritan PAD 350P, samaritan PAD 360P and samaritan PAD 500P. The company’s flagship samaritan PAD family of AEDs utilizes proprietary electrode technology, advanced and stable firmware, and proprietary SCOPE™ (Self-Compensating Output Pulse Envelope ) biphasic technology (an escalating and low-energy waveform that automatically adjusts for patient impedance differences) to assess rhythm and ensure effective shock delivery when necessary.
“CPR Advisor, the most innovative technology to be deployed in an AED in several years, has saved many additional lives,” says Declan O’Mahoney, CEO of HeartSine Technologies. “Competing products use a puck which is pushed on by the rescuer after being placed on the patient’s chest. Not only is this solution uncomfortable for the rescuer, it does not account for the patient’s physiology or the firmness of the surface on which the patient is lying. CPR Advisor overcomes these drawbacks with a proven, unique solution that is now shipping on our samaritan PAD 500P product. This product is a true CPR rescue device combined with an AED.”
Ventricular fibrillation (V-fib or VF) is a condition in which there is uncoordinated contraction of the heart muscle, making it quiver rather than contract properly. Ventricular fibrillation is the most commonly identified arrhythmia in SCA patients. In victims of SCA it is possible to re-establish normal sinus rhythm by means of an electric shock across the heart. This treatment is called defibrillation.
Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a type of tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) that arises from improper electrical activity of the heart. VT starts in the bottom chambers of the heart, called the ventricles. Although there are many different types of VT, this arrhythmia can be potentially life-threatening if the patient presents with no pulse and is unresponsive. If not treated with immediate defibrillation VT may lead to other arrhythmias.
Treatment by AED
It is a common misconception that CPR alone and calling emergency services is enough. CPR is a temporary measure that maintains blood flow and oxygen to the brain. CPR alone will not return a heart to a normal rhythm during VF or VT. The key to survival is defibrillation – and the sooner the better.
Defibrillation is a common treatment for life threatening arrhythmias, mainly ventricular fibrillation. Defibrillation consists of delivering an electrical shock to the heart with a device called a defibrillator. This restores normal heart muscle contractions and allows normal sinus rhythm to be restored by the body’s natural pacemaker in the heart.
