The Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration has approved for sale Cardiac Science's automatic hospital bedside defibrillator-monitor, Powerheart. The Irvine, California-based company has signed an exclusive distribution agreement in Australia with CS Australia Pty, which has already resulted in the sale of 50 of the devices, it says. The device was cleared for sale in the US early last year (see Clinica No 894, p 17).
