Cardiac Science (Irvine, California) has begun marketing a fourth-generation automated external defibrillator (AED) designed for use by medical professionals in hospital and emergency situations. International shipments are expected to begin in May, while a US launch will depend on receipt of FDA 510(k) marketing clearance. Powerheart AED G4 has a manual override function, real-time continuous ECG monitoring on a colour display, AED and CPR voice prompts and data storage, among other features. Its selling price is $3,495. Cardiac recently signed an agreement with group purchasing organisation Premier covering its external defibrillator range.
