Powerheart AED Patient Simulator
Powerheart AED Patient Simulator
Product Code 9021-002USA
- AED Patient simulator
Designed for use with Cardiac Science’s Powerheart G3 AED range, including the G3 Pro, this AED Patient Simulator can switch a live, clinical AED into a training model to demonstrate to users the different stages of a cardiac arrest rescue process.
The simulator can program the users G3 to display the analysis of a patient’s heart stage with various arrhythmias. This helps the learners to understand how the AED will react in different circumstances.
- Over 200bpm- VF – Ventricular Fibrillation
- Approx 185bpm- VT fast – Ventricular Tachycardia
- Approx 140bpm - VT slow – Ventricular Tachycardia
- Approx 72bpm - NSR – Normal Sinus Rhythm –– ‘non-shockable’ rhythm
- ASYS – Asystole – Non-shockable rhythm
- Approx 170bpm - SVT slow – Supra Ventricular Tachycardia
- Artifact – Unusable signal, heart rate not applicable
- 210bpm Approx - SVT fast – Supra Ventricular Tachycardia
How to use
Simply connect your Powerheart G3 AED and you will be able to treat the unit as a training unit, enabling you to teach other users how to use an AED properly and with confidence.
The multiple waveform capabilities allow the AED to mirror a real rescue. This allows students to thoroughly understand what needs to be done for patients experiencing different heart rhythms and how the AED will react to the different arrhythmias.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
