About the new defibrillator-monitor

The new defibrillator-monitor is a lightweight, rugged and portable device designed for use by professionals in medically-supervised environments to respond to cardiac emergencies. Similar to Cardiac Science's line of portable AEDs, the new device is extremely easy to use, while still incorporating advanced resuscitation and pacing therapies for use by the trained medical professional.

The new defibrillator-monitor incorporates Cardiac Science's patented STAR(R) biphasic escalating shock energy technology which automatically adjusts the magnitude of the defibrillation shock based upon each patient's unique body type. It also employs Cardiac Science's patented RHYTHMx(R) software, which provides heart rhythm analysis and shock advice to effectively address life-threatening arrhythmias.
