Date:8/30/2011

NEWTOWN, Pa., Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartSine® Technologies, Inc. (www.heartsine.com), a world leader in personal and public access defibrillators, announced today that Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. has selected  the HeartSine Automated External Defibrillator (AED) as the exclusive AED in its facilities.  

Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is a major regional supermarket chain and one of the largest private companies in the U.S. with 2010 annual sales of $5.6 billion and over 41,000 employees.

By the end of 2011, the HeartSine samaritan® PAD 300P Public Access Defibrillator will be available in all 79 Wegmans stores should an employee or customer suffer from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Designed for use on children and adults, its simple two-button operation and voice/visual prompts with clear instructions will guide rescuers through every step, including pad application, shock delivery and CPR.

Each Wegmans store ranges from 80,000 to 140,000 square feet in size. As part of the implementation, a comprehensive evaluation of each Wegmans store has been conducted, including the parking lots. This will help to ensure that a HeartSine PAD is easily accessible in a cardiac arrest emergency.

Quick response times are critical for the best possible outcome for recovery. When sudden cardiac arrest happens, the American Heart Association recommends that defibrillation treatment begin within three minutes. After 5 minutes and every minute thereafter, a victim loses 10% of their brain function due to loss of oxygen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a SCA event occurs once every 34 seconds.
