Our Company

HeartSine Technologies, a division of Physio-Control, advances the deployment of lifesaving defibrillation therapy for the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest in non-traditional areas of care.

HeartSine was founded in 1998 to continue innovative development of advanced lifesaving products for the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest. Our passion to innovate began in 1967, when we invented the first mobile defibrillator and changed the way the world delivered emergency care. In the years since, HeartSine has continued its passion to innovate by advancing mobile defibrillation and lifesaving technology.

Our flagship product, the HeartSine samaritan PAD (Public Access Defibrillator), which is designed for ease of use, has been deployed in thousands of facilities.
