Olivia's journey with Treacher Collins
“We’ve been waiting three years for a surgery like this, and we had previously received an answer that no, she wouldn’t be able to get it and that she was going to remain like this.

Vanessa
Mother of patient, Olivia, diagnosed with Treacher Collins syndrome
Roberto's new lease on life
“If someone had told me about an 8-hour cardiac arrest, I wouldn’t have believed it. But this truly happened.

Alessandro Forti, MD
HEMS Head Coordinator

Globally, cardiac arrest claims more lives than colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, influenza, pneumonia, auto accidents, HIV, firearms, and house fires combined 1. Surviving a cardiac arrest event is dependent on a strong system of care, and uninterrupted, high-quality chest compressions are a vital part of a successful resuscitation. With the right tools in the hands of the right teams, we can save lives. 


Sean beat the odds

“I was in the height of my marathon training when I collapsed. I needed nine defibs over the two cardiac arrests to come back.

Sean
HeartSine Samaritan AED and LUCAS Chest compression System patient

When bystanders provide CPR and use an AED to deliver a shock within 3-5 minutes of collapse or before EMS arrives, survival rates can increase as high as 70%.2 Designed specifically for the lay responder, HeartSine samaritan AEDs offer industry-leading value and environmental protection, all in an easy-to-operate system in the smallest and lightest package available and our LUCAS Chest Compression System has shown a 60% increase in blood flow to the brain vs. manual CPR.3

Sandy survived a stroke

“I appreciate every moment, every step that I climb. . . . Because I know, now, what I lost and got back.

Sandy
Stroke survivor, Trevo Retriever patient

Every 40 seconds in the U.S. someone suffers a stroke. And it is a leading cause of disability.  Evidence from our DAWN trial led to a new 24-hour treatment window for the Trevo Retriever, offering more patients the opportunity for treatment.
