Philips Defibrillators

HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator
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 patient's side. Using clear, natural voice instructions, the OnSite Defibrillator guides you through each step of defibrillation and CPR. Integrated SMART Pads placed on the patients bare skin transmit information to the defibrillator, which senses and adapts to your actions every step of the way.

HeartStart 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 children4.

Ready When Needed
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.

As long as the green Ready light on the defibrillator is blinking, the OnSite has passed its last self-test and you can be confidentthe HeartStart OnSite is ready for use. If a self-test finds that the defibrillator needs attention, the Ready light turns off and the defibrillator chirps to alert you. Pressing the flashing blue Information button provides verbal guidance to help you identify and correct the situation.

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 pads on the patient to delivering a defibrillation shock.

HeartStart OnSite determines if a heart rhythm is shockable:
• If a shock is indicated, the defibrillator directs you to press the flashing orange Shock button. Then, HeartStart OnSite delivers a dose of low-energy biphasic therapy, a highly effective defibrillation waveform that is also gentle to the heart.

• If a shock is not indicated, the OnSite Defibrillator instructs you to assess the patient and to perform CPR when necessary. While performing CPR, the defibrillator's voice instructions can be activated to coach you on the frequency and depth of compressions.

HeartStart OnSite also reminds you to call emergency medical services (EMS). And, should EMS need a summary of care, it can be retrieved from the defibrillator's internal memory. An EMS provider simply presses the “i-button” and HeartStart OnSite verbally recounts events from its last clinical use.
