The Cardiac Science Powerheart G5 is one of the most effective AEDs on the market and its one to ‘nerd out’ over. The Powerheart G5 was the first FDA-approved AED with fully automatic shock delivery, dual-language capabilities, changeable increasing energy, and rapid shock times.
The Powerheart G5 features Rescue Ready® technology that self-tests its electrical components, such as the batteries and rescue pads. Via a Rescue Ready indicator, this AED will give you a visual indicator that the AED is ready to use at all times.

For advanced responders, the Powerheart G5 defibrillator offers asystole detection with threshold measurement that is exceptionally accurate.

If a victim is not responding to shocks given, the AED user can use the technology to intelligently increase the shock in hopes to increase effectiveness.
