Date:2/10/2011

BOTHELL, Wash., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardiac Science Corporation, a global leader in automated external defibrillator (AED) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices, has been awarded a contract to deploy Powerheart® AEDs at U.S. Postal Inspection Service sites across the nation. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is the primary law enforcement arm of the United States Postal Service.

"We are proud to have been selected to protect the men and women of the Postal Inspection Service," said Dave Marver, Cardiac Science president and chief executive officer.

The Powerheart AED's RescueCoach™ user-paced voice prompts and CPR metronome guide rescuers confidently through a stressful rescue situation. The Powerheart AED G3 Plus delivers a shock automatically with no button to push and no human intervention. After the shock, the Powerheart AED instructs users how to perform high-quality CPR.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in North America, claiming more than 365,000 lives each year. It's estimated that more than 95 percent of cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital. In cardiac arrest, the heart's electrical impulses fire irregularly and the heart cannot pump blood to the rest of the body. A defibrillator is the only effective therapy for sudden cardiac arrest. It provides a life-saving shock to effectively restart the heart's electrical impulses.
