Cardiac Science finally brings out the new Powerheart G5 defibrillator

Cardiac Science Powerheart G5 AEDAfter about a year delay Cardiac Science finally has started delivering the new G5 defibrillator to replace, over time, the very successful G3 model. The Powerheart G3 had for a long time been the best selling of all our defibrillators.

The new G5

With an impressive 7 year warranty, Rescue Ready self-test technology and real-time CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) feedback for invaluable guidance, it’s understandable why the Powerheart G5 AED CPRD defibrillator is regarded as the next generation of defibrillation equipment.

Whether you are a healthcare professional or someone with minimal first aid training, responding to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can be a daunting experience. The Powerheart G5 offers ease of use as well as voice and text prompts, helping to guide and calm the rescuer throughout the defibrillation process.

Featuring an integrated sensor device, the G5 assesses the CPR performance given by the rescuer and provides real-time feedback to ensure the correct compression depth and rhythm is achieved. This innovative technology also extends to assessing the patient’s therapy needs, delivering a shock at the necessary energy level, and automatically detecting when paediatric pads are in use. This defibrillator coaches and works with you to give the victim the best chances of survival.

Defibrillators are life-saving devices and it is important that they remain in full working order at all times. To assist with this, the G5 has ‘Rescue Ready’ self check technology, performing regular tests on all main AED components including the battery, hardware, software and pads and provides visible green LED confirmation that the G5 has passed these tests.

Safelincs is committed to providing our customers with the best possible service and value for money. When purchasing the Powerheart G5 AED defibrillator, our customers will receive a FREE AED responder kit, one FREE place on a St John Ambulance defibrillator training course, as well as one set of FREE replacement pads after 2 years of purchase.

New Adapter Plate to Allow Dorgard to be Fitted to Steel Doors

The Dorgard fire door retainer has traditionally been suitable for use on wooden doors only.  The fixing screws supplied with the Dorgard did not allow for installation on steel doors – an application growing in popularity.  With the increase in steel door installations, it was evident that an adapter was needed to cater for this requirement.

Working with Fireco, the manufacturers, Safelincs now offer the new self-adhesive adapter plate, which allows for the Dorgard fire door retainer to be installed on a steel door.  The adapter is fitted quickly and easily and the Dorgard can be removed for maintenance purposes from the plate even after the install. The adapter plate is supplied with a chemical cleaning cloth to prepare the door’s surface and clear instructions for the installation.

Using the Dorgard fitting template as a guide, this allows for the installer to mark out the necessary position of the plate.  Once marked, the plate can be secured to the steel door using the self adhesive sticker pads. The Dorgard can then be fixed to the adapter plate using the fixing screws provided.

The adapter plate for steel doors can also be used with the wood effect Dorgard fire door retainers, as well as the metal cover finishes.
