Philips HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator

The first defibrillator available without a prescription to commercial users

The OnSite has a long life battery:

• 5 year shelf life plus 4 year installed life

• The same battery technology used with confidence in millions of cameras

Automatic self-tests help ensure continued readiness:

• Daily self-tests check electrical components, subsystems and battery

• A self-test also verifies that the pads cartridge is installed and in working order

• A blinking green “Ready” light means the OnSite has passed its last self test, so you can be confident the defibrillator is ready for use

Easy to use

Using the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator is simple. Pulling the

green handle activates the defibrillator and voice instructions.These

instructions are paced to your actions, to help guide you through the

entire process — from placing each pad on the patient to delivering

a defibrillation shock.

Description

Each year sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) strikes approximately 340,000 people in the U.S. alone. The majority of these people have no warning, since they show no prior symptoms. And sadly, fewer than 5% survive, often because emergency medical services cannot reach them in time. SCA most often occurs when the electrical system of the heart becomes chaotic, causing it to stop beating effectively. Lacking proper blood flow, the person loses consciousness, stops breathing, and will die unless promptly treated. CPR is important, but it alone cannot restore a normal heart rhythm. A “shock” from a defibrillator is the  most effective way to restore the heart’s normal pumping rhythm. The victim’s best chance of survival is to receive that shock within 5 minutes of collapse. Just as seat belts or airbags do not  save every life in a traffic accident, a defibrillator will not save every person who suffers a sudden cardiac arrest.Yet many lives could be saved if more people could be reached more quickly. Philips Heart Start Defibrillators enable virtually anyone to treat the most common cause of SCA quickly and effectively, wherever it happens — at work, at play, in the air — providing the power to save a life.

Philips, the leader in portable defibrillation technology, designed the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator for the ordinary person in the extraordinary moment. Available without a prescription, the OnSite is designed to be the easiest to use and most reliable defibrillator available. Our innovative technology, based on extensive research and user feedback, has produced a defibrillator so easy to use that 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 victim’s side. Using clear, calm voice instructions, the OnSite Defibrillator guides you through each step of defibrillation, including CPR Coaching. Integrated SMART Pads placed on the victim’s bare skin transmit information to the defibrillator, which senses and adapts to your actions every step of the way. Heart Start OnSite includes proven Philips technologies for heart rhythm assessment (SMART Analysis) and defibrillation energy delivery (SMART Biphasic). And like all HeartStart Defibrillators, it can be used to treat adults, as well as infants and children.
