CARDIAC SCIENCE DEFIBRILLATORS MEET NEW EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN GUIDELINES

April 24, 2006

Cardiac Science Corporation has shipped two new models of its Powerheart automated external defibrillators (AEDs) that meet new American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiovascular care, as well as the recently released European Resuscitation Council (ERC) guidelines for resuscitation. All new Powerheart models will fully incorporate and comply with the new guidelines. Powerheart AEDs currently in use today are capable of being reconfigured to support the new guidelines and the company plans to offer software updates to existing customers to facilitate implementation of the new guidelines-compliant software in previously deployed Powerhearts during 2006.
