Cardiac Science Celebrates 100-Year Anniversary

WAUKESHA, Wis., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Cardiac Science Corporation, an Opto Circuits group company and a global leader in automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices, announced the start of its 100-year anniversary celebration with a proclamation from Wis. Gov. Scott Walker marking today as "Cardiac Science Day" throughout the state of Wisconsin.

The anniversary recognizes the company's impact for over a century in providing clinicians with effective tools to identify and treat heart disease, assess results and help improve public health. Notable milestones include inventing the first automated external defibrillator (AED) that was fully automatic, the single-channel interpretive electrocardiogram (ECG), and the first modern stress test. These life-saving products are now in schools, military installations, hospitals, and doctors' offices worldwide.

The yearlong celebration, which commemorates the company's founding in 1913 in Milton, Wis., will also honor the people who have allowed the company to flourish.

"Very few companies reach their 100-year anniversary, especially one that has taken many risks to remain at the forefront of innovation," said Neal Long, CEO and President of Cardiac Science. "This anniversary is a testament to the employees, customers and distributors who've remained loyal to Cardiac Science throughout our 100 years of existence."

The company has also launched the Cardiac Science at 100 website that provides visitors with historic images, ads, user-submitted content and an interactive timeline. As part of the anniversary celebration, customers who still own vintage Burdick and Quinton products are asked to submit pictures of these pieces of equipment. Visit www.cardiacscience100.com to learn more about this contest, product promotions and other anniversary events throughout the year.
