HEARTSTART ONSITE AED
Philips, the leader in onsite AED defibrillation technology, designed the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator for the ordinary person in the extraordinary moment. Our innovative technology, based on extensive research and user feedback, has produced a defibrillator so easy to use that, with minimal training, you can potentially save the life of a co-worker, friend, or anyone else stricken with sudden cardiac arrest.
Weighing just 3.3 lbs., this small and lightweight defibrillator can be easily carried to the patient’s side.
Using clear, natural voice instructions, the OnSite Defibrillator guides you, the first caregiver on the scene,through each step of defibrillation and CPR. Integrated SMART Pads placed on the patient’s bare skin transmit information to the defibrillator, which senses and adapts to your actions every step of the way.
HeartStart Onsite is powered by a simple, safe, long-life (four-year) battery, the same technology used in cameras. Just click the battery in place, and the defibrillator is standing by, ready for use.
Between uses, the defibrillator performs daily, weekly, and monthly self-tests of its electrical components, subsystems, and battery to help ensure continued reliability and readiness. A pads integrity test, which checks daily that the cartridge is properly installed and that the defibrillator pads are in working order, provides an additional level of assurance.
Using the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator is simple. Pulling the green handle powers-up the defibrillator and activates voice instructions. These instructions are paced to your actions, to help guide you through the entire process, from placing pads on the patient to delivering a defibrillation shock.
