BELFAST, Northern Ireland & NEWTOWN, Pa.

HeartSine® Technologies is pleased to announce that it has signed a master distributor contract with Aska Equipments Ltd. (http://askagroup.com/) to offer the company’s line of AEDs (automatic external defibrillators), aptly named samaritan PAD (public access defibrillator), throughout India.

Based in New Delhi, Aska is the largest manufacturer in India of fire extinguishing products (water mist technology) and lighting systems for disaster management.

“Aska has a Pan-India presence and a highly efficient sales and after-sales service organization,” says Harsh Garg, Director Marketing of Aska Equipments Ltd. “We chose to partner with HeartSine because the company’s AED technology is highly dependable, easy to use, and can save many lives like all other Aska products. As a company, HeartSine also has demonstrated the ability and strength to scale very quickly in new markets.”

Aska will offer HeartSine’s complete range of samaritan® PAD AEDs, which includes the SAM 350P, SAM 360P and SAM 500P. The company’s flagship samaritan PAD utilizes proprietary electrode technology, advanced and stable firmware, and proprietary SCOPE™ (Self-Compensating Output Pulse Envelope) biphasic technology (an escalating and low-energy waveform that automatically adjusts for patient impedance differences) to assess rhythm and maximize effective shock delivery if necessary.

“The number of AEDs in use in India is very small compared to the large number of potential occurrences of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in India’s vast population,” says Volker Brand, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing at HeartSine. “A population of over 1.5 billion people makes India one of the largest global markets for AEDs in the world. We see this as a great opportunity to save lives in India like we do in 40 other countries.”

“Our AEDs will complement the emergency equipment that Aska offers to its customers throughout India. Partnering with a company with a valued reputation in emergency care enables us to work together to lower the occurrence of sudden cardiac death in India.”

About SCA

Sudden cardiac arrest is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, causing blood to stop flowing to the brain and other vital organs. SCA usually causes death if it’s not treated within minutes. CPR alone will not restart the heart, so the American Heart Association recommends CPR combined with early defibrillation (within three to five minutes) for the best outcome.

SCA claims more than seven million lives annually. It occurs abruptly and without warning, with 84 percent of SCA events occurring outside of the healthcare setting.
