IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM DEFIB FOR LIFE

UPDATE No.4

RE:G3 & G5 Cardiac Science 7-year pad and battery replacement package

On Friday, 26 March 2021, our lawyers received notification that Dean Sheezel, the managing director of Cardiac Defibrillators Australia PtyLtd (Cardiac Defibrillators), placed Cardiac Defibrillators into voluntary liquidation. 

A liquidator has been appointed and he will move quickly to realise all of the assets in Cardiac Defibrillators and to pay creditors in proportion to the amount of their debts. We are waiting for further information from the liquidator regarding Cardiac Defibrillators, including the known creditors of the company, the amount of their debts, and whether claims can be brought against the directors of Cardiac Defibrillators.

It is difficult to estimate when dividends will be paid to the creditors, and how much those dividends will be. It is also difficult to estimate how long it will take for the liquidator to complete his investigations in relation to Cardiac Defibrillators.

Should Defib For Life be successful in redeeming some funds from Cardiac Defibrillators, we will endeavour to arrange a reimbursement on a pro rata basis amongst all the customers who have prepaid for the replacement electrode pads and batteries in the seven-year package, but have not received them.

Defib For Life’s highest priority is to ensure that your defibrillators remain rescue-ready as much as possible. Contrary to a number of discussions some of our customers have had with Cardiac

Defibrillators, Defib For Life have been able sourcereplacement electrode pads and batteries for the G3 and G5 Powerheart defibrillators from an alternate supplier.

For those customers who are affected by the voluntary liquidation of Cardiac Defibrillators, replacement electrode pads and batteries are currently available at as close to cost price as possible. If your defibrillator’s electrode pads and/or batteries are past, or close to, their expiry dates, Defib For Life are able to assist you in securing suitable replacements.

Please contact Sue Buckman via sue@defibforlife.org.au or 1300 880 309.

CHRIS JUDD

When a cardiac arrest occurs seconds become crucial every minute that passes equates to a 10% less chance of survival. 

It is vital that witnesses of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest immediately call 000, start CPR and apply an automatic external defibrillator (AED).

Make sure your Club or workplace is protected with a defibrillator, have an AED on hand. It’s not just the athletes, think about your coaches, the parents, the supporters…. everyone who visits your Club. 

Don’t wait ’til it’s too late, install a defibrillator now.

SAMANTHA JOBE (Survivor)

Samantha Jobe survived a heart attack thanks to the quick actions of the trainers at her gym and the use of a defibrillator from a nearby business. 

“I am one of the lucky ones, but I will be forever grateful that one of the local businesses purchased a Defib and told their neighbours it was there for use. Being defibrillated quickly saved my life!

DARREN LEHMANN

I support Defib For Life's vision to see defibrillators located in as many public places as possible.

I recently learned that 1 in 500 of us are living with an undiagnosed cardiac condition that could suddenly impact our lives. This fact became reality for me when at 4am on the morning of my 50th birthday I woke with a sensation in my chest that I knew wasn't right. I immediately called an ambulance and was soon after diagnosed with several blockages in my coronary arteries. My cardiologist explained to me that I was extremely fortunate not to have suffered a sudden cardiac arrest prior to my hospital admission.

Make sure your community is Rescue Ready by installing a life saving defibrillator.
