Sahar Madanat Haddad is aiming to increase the survival rate of those suffering from a sudden onset of cardiac arrest with the Heart Aid concept. This unique device acts as a defibrillator and allows CPR to be performed. What’s more, Heart Aid has a special video screen that instructs the user on how to administer CPR and operate the defibrillator.
The device wraps around the victim’s chest and back, with a compression button located on the sternum and the video monitor placed below it. The defibrillator pads sit on the pectoral muscles, ensuring that a newbie operator doesn't place them in the wrong spot. While Sahar Madanat Haddad’s Heart Aid is still a concept, it has several features that would undoubtedly save lives if implemented into current and future defibrillators.
