The earliest Cardiac Science company was founded in 1913. The Burdick Company, as it was then known, developed the first infrared lamp for medical use. The company went on to become a pioneer in the electrocardiograph technology and the preferred ECG brand among clinicians which is still held today.
Cardiac Science, Inc, was formed in 1991 to develop FDA-approved rhythm-analysis software, the foundation for the first fully automatic bedside defibrillator. The Powerheart defibrillator was able to treat life-threatening arrhythmias without the need for human intervention. In 2001, the company consolidated all AED production under the Powerheart brand and now, with 80 Powerheart patents, these AEDs include some of the most technologically advanced, easy-to-use features in the field.
The Cardiac Science AED defibrillator family offers patented Rescue Ready technology to self-test all main components every day. The heart defibrillator features RescueCoach voice prompts and includes an industry-leading 7-year warranty that sets it apart from the competitors.
