ADS Inc / Phokus Research Group / Cardiac Science – AED and Bleeding Control Pack

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

At Warrior East, I found out that ADS Inc, Phokus Research Group and Cardiac Science have teamed up to offer an AED and Bleeding Control Pack solution for wall mount installation.  Not that many years ago, Automated External Defibrillators were only used by medical personnel and it was rare to find one outside of a medical facility.  Today, they are more sophisticated and found everywhere.  They are used to restart the heart after a sudden cardiac arrest which can strike those with a variety of conditions.

Unfortunately, mass casualty events such as mass shootings have become more common over the past few years so it seems obvious to combine a Cardiac Science AED with Phokus Research Group’s bleeding control packs.

In addition to the Cardiac Science AED, the box also contains a kit filled with Individual Bleeding Control Kits consisting of Quickclot dressing, Tourniquet, Z-fold sterile frog gauze, chest seals, medical frog tape, nitrile gloves and a rescue blanket. What’s more, the wall mounted boxes can be alarmed to alert medical and security personnel when they are used.

Available for agency and unit purchase through ADS Inc. 

Care Center MD

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

ADS’s Team of Medical SMEs has been working with industry to introduce new capabilities. Their latest project is the Cardiac Science’s Care Center MD paired with a Hewlett Packard Slate 500 PC Tablet making it the first the first truly expeditionary 12 lead ECG monitor kit.

The CCMD kit provides cardiac diagnostic information to deployed field units. Until now, this level of care was limited to robust medical treatment facilities and large deck Navy vessels due to the lack of portability of the ECG machine. The CCMD software program can deliver a preliminary diagnosis with multiple reach back options for immediate Medical Officer concurrence. The CCMD kit provides in the field diagnostic information to rule out cardiac related chest pain vs non-cardiac related chest pain, saving lives and potentially saving thousands of dollars by avoiding unnecessary MEDEVACS.

It is easy to use and accurate, requiring basic training and features an easy-to-read layout with a full display of key patient and test data. For example, the its unique at-a-glance indication of electrode contact quality verifies patient hookup prior to testing. Also, single-button navigation for all modalities simplifies workflow with fast access to advanced display and analysis tools with just the click of a mouse. The device does the work for you, with sophisticated analysis software extensively tested against a variety of industry standard databases for optimum performance. The system’s HP Slate 500 comes preloaded with all required CCMD software and Windows 7.

The kit includes:
1 CCMD system
1 lead connection set
1 pack of ECG pads enough for ten patients
1 HP Slate 500 preloaded
1 HP Slate 500 docking/charging station
1 HP Stylus pen
1 Pelican storage container

The CCMD will be on display in the medical section at Warrior Expo West. Be sure to get a full briefing and try it out. It is going to change deployed cardiac care.

Powerheart Automated External Defibrillator

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

The Powerheart AED G3 Plus from Cardiac Science is an automated defibrillator designed for use by untrained personnel. It features RescueCoach and a CPR metronome to pace chest compressions. Additionally, the on-board Rescue Ready technology self-checks all main AED components (battery, hardware, software, and pads) daily. It also completes a partial charge of the high-voltage electronics weekly, and a full charge monthly.
