Real-Time CPR Feedback
The Powerheart® G5 AED uses Intellisense™ CPR (ICPR) technology to monitor CPR chest compressions, providing rescuers with distinct corrective audible and visual prompts: Press Slower, Press Faster, Press Softer, and Press Harder and Fully Release.
The Powerheart G5 AED performs comprehensive self-testing to ensure it’s ready to rescue. Studies have shown that approximately 46% of AED failures are due to pad, pad connector, or battery power problems.1 The Powerheart G5 AED self-tests detect and help prevent these issues.
User-Paced Rescue Prompts
RescueCoach® prompts guide users step-by-step through the rescue process. The AED recognizes actions taken and ensures that the rescuer completes every critical task before moving on to the next.
With a touch of a button, CPR Instruction, ICPR corrections, and AED prompts can quickly switch from the primary language to a preprogrammed alternate language without delaying the rescue.
