- G5 Carry sleeve
The Powerheart G5 Carry Sleeve has been designed for Cardiac’s Science’s G5 AED range and provides you with the option to transport your life-saving AED around with you, as you travel.
Thanks to the sleek yet functional design of the G5 Carry Sleeve, bystanders will be alerted the sleeve’s contents and the owner can be safe in the knowledge that the AED is well protected against any environmental elements. The transparency of the sleeve ensures that the status indicator and the expiry date of the important electrode pads remain visible at all times. This means you can easily ensure that your AED is always in a state of readiness.
The shoulder strap on this sleeve is adjustable, allowing you to comfortably carry your AED with you to the site of an emergency with ease.
How to Use
Simply slot your G5 AED into the sleeve and you can transport it wherever you go. The sleeve comes equipped with an extra zip pocket built in which allows for extra storage of essential accessories, such as electrode pads, batteries and a rescue kit.
Cardiac Science’s Powerheart G5 boasts an impressive IP55 rating, meaning it is protected against limited dust and low-pressure water which may come from any direction. There’s no harm in protecting your life-saving device even further as the sleeve will ensure your AED can withstand harsh environments and exposure to the elements and even damp and dust.

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.
