These devices come with optional remote WiFi monitoring which sends owners notifications if the device should encounter and error or be rendered inoperative.
All AED pads contain an adhesive gel coating, which allows the pads to stick to the surface of the patient’s skin, and this also conducts the shock being transmitted. Due to the possibility of this adhesive gel drying out in the long term, all pads come sealed in a package and have an expiry date. The Samaritan features a unique design which offers a single replacement PadPak, which contains replacement batteries and replacement pads, which are designed to expire at the same time. They both have a 4 year shelf life. Pediatric pads do not typically come equipped with the Samaritan, but are available to purchase separately. Pediatric pads are recommended to be used on individuals less than 8 years old, or under 55 lbs.
Batteries in AEDs have a limited life span due to the fact that they run frequent self-checks and the need to maintain enough charge to deliver multiple shocks in an emergency. The Heartsine Samaritan battery has a 4 year shelf life, and is available for repurchase in the PadPak which also contains replacement pads.
All Samaritan AEDs run self-diagnostic checks daily, weekly and monthly. There is a green indicator light which will flash if the device is in proper working order. If the device detects any issues, the indicator light will flash red or stop flashing, and the machine will periodically emit an audible beep. If this should happen, please consult the user manual in order to troubleshoot.
These devices also feature data download options, as the device records heart rhythms and other valuable data when it is being used. This data can be downloaded onto a computer and utilized by First Responders and Medical Professionals to determine the nature of the issue and assess treatment options. Please refer to the manufacturer’s website below to find out more.
The Samaritan AED is priced between $1400-$2000, depending on the model. Consider the cost and frequency of replacement pads and batteries when evaluating AED purchase options.
