Australia Chooses Cardiac Science to Equip Its Defence Force

BOTHELL, Wash., April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiac Science Corporation (Nasdaq: CSCX), a global leader in advanced cardiac diagnosis, resuscitation, rehabilitation, and informatics products, announced it won a five-year contract from the Australian Defence Force for the initial supply of 170 Powerheart(R) G3 Pro(R) automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and accessories. The sale adds to a string of international wins including a 100-unit delivery to Eastern European military forces and a 300-unit delivery for public access defibrillators for train stations in the Netherlands.


"We are honored to support the service men and women of Australian Defence Force with the durable Powerheart AED G3 Pro," said Kurt Lemvigh, international vice president, Cardiac Science. "Australia's confidence will be rewarded with dependable defibrillation, ease-of-use, data transmission and connectivity, and 3-lead ECG monitoring capabilities."

The G3 Pro provides the industry's first ECG color display, manual override features, multiple rescue capability, and the most advanced technology for rescue professionals' emergency treatment of sudden cardiac arrest. Infrared data communications allow data from the AEDs to be transmitted to a Windows PC, for ready connectivity and event documentation.

Cardiac Science is a leading AED supplier to Australia. Working with the government and key Australian organizations, Cardiac Science created significant awareness for the need for public access defibrillation in the Australian market. Now, a growing number of major corporations deploy Cardiac Science AEDs on a large scale, protecting workplaces against sudden cardiac arrest.

All Powerheart AEDs feature patented Rescue Ready(R) technology to run daily, weekly, and monthly self-tests of battery, internal electronics, software, and pads. Rescue Ready tests differentiate Powerheart devices among AEDs and ensure anytime functionality and shock delivery.
