Real-Life Emergency Note

In a genuine emergency, speed is essential. This demonstration provides a step-by-step breakdown, but remember, in reality, you must act swiftly.

Understanding HeartSine 350 vs. HeartSine 500

Learn the key differences:

  • HeartSine 350: Provides AED support without CPR guidance.
  • HeartSine 500: Offers CPR guidance along with AED functions.

Metronome Assistance

The HeartSine 350 features a metronome to help maintain the correct compression rate during CPR.

Training Scenario Initiation

The demonstration begins when the AED becomes available for use.

Preparing the Patient

Steps to prepare the patient:

  • Expose Chest: Remove clothing, including bras or vests, to place pads on bare skin.
  • Check for Pacemakers: Ensure no pacemaker is present.
  • Jewellery and Patches: Remove jewellery and identify patches with metal components.
  • Continuous CPR: If possible, one person prepares the AED while another continues CPR.

Swift AED Preparation

Time is crucial:

  • Turn On the AED: Activate the AED unit swiftly.
  • Pad Placement: Position pads as instructed in the provided images.
  • Follow Voice Prompts: Adhere to the AED's voice instructions.

Important Caution

During the AED's heart rhythm assessment:

  • Avoid Touching the Patient: Refrain from touching the patient, as it may interfere with the assessment.

Shock Delivery

Executing the shock:

  • Ensure Clear Area: Confirm everyone is clear before shocking.
  • Follow AED Instructions: Obey AED prompts, including when to initiate CPR.
  • Metronome Guidance: Maintain compression rhythm in sync with the metronome.
  • CPR Interruption: Cease CPR as directed by the AED for rhythm analysis.

"No Shock Advised"

Understanding the message:

  • Signs of Improvement: If "no shock advised" is prompted, it may indicate potential signs of improvement.
  • Continue CPR: In this case, persist with CPR until emergency services arrive or exhaustion sets in.
