The SAM 450P uses an interchangeable battery and electrode pack called PadPak. The SAM 450P in combination with an adult Pad-Pak is suitable for use on patients of over 55 lbs (25 kg) in weight or equivalent to a child of approximately eight years old or older.
For use on smaller children (from 1 to 8 years old), remove the adult Pad-Pak and install a Pediatric-Pak. If a Pediatric-Pak or an alternative suitable defibrillator is not available, you may use an adult Pad-Pak. If you treat a pediatric patient with an adult Pad-Pak, ignore any voice prompts regarding the rate of the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The CPR Rate Advisor is currently only intended to provide feedback on adult patients. Do not delay treatment trying to find out the patient’s exact age and weight. The SAM 450P delivers therapeutic electrical shocks that can cause serious harm to either operators or bystanders. Take care to ensure that nobody touches the patient when a shock is to be delivered.
Avoid opening or repairing The SAM 450P has no serviceable parts. Do NOT open or repair the device under any circumstances as there could be danger of electric shock. If damage is suspected, replace the SAM 450P. While some cardiac events are treatable with effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) alone, others require a combination of effective CPR and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver a lifesaving shock within the first few minutes of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
In both cases, effective CPR contributes to an increase of survival rates of up to 75%. More than a simple AED, the HeartSine Samaritan® PAD 450P with integrated CPR Rate Advisor™ provides real-time visible and audible feedback to the rescuer on the rate of chest compressions during an SCA resuscitation. While some SCA victims benefit from the delivery of a shock, effective CPR with minimum interruption will maximize the chances of a positive outcome for virtually every SCA victim.
Using HeartSine’s proprietary ICG-based technology, the SAM 450P with CPR Rate Advisor provides the rescuer with continuous, real-time verbal prompts of “push faster,” “push slower,” or “good speed” to help achieve the optimum rate of compressions as defined by the American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for CPR. Similarly, the SAM 450P detects if CPR has stopped, and prompts the rescuer to “Begin CPR” until CPR has resumed. The SAM 450P also incorporates an intuitive LED-based visual feedback feature that operates in tandem with the verbal prompts enabling rescuers to operate in extra noisy environments.
