We are now offering the PHILPS HeartStart HS1 AED on it’s own, with a slim case or with a free OH backpack from the Infection Control Range!

The PHILIPS HeartStart HS1 is a popular defib, designed to be easily used by anyone. The defib will coach the user through the CPR process, which is vital to a patient’s survival. The defib provides clear audio instructions and guidance on how to proceed with the patient to ensure maximum chance of survival.

The objective of buying an AED is to save a life in case of a sudden cardiac arrest.  As per the recommendations of he Resuscitation Council (UK), European Resuscitation Council, and the American Heart Association, the most important requirement of using an AED is to never interrupt CPR compressions for more than 10 seconds.  This is so important as the chances of survival drop dramatically after the first 10 seconds of CPR interruption:  at 10 seconds the chances of survival will be 80%.  At 10-15, it will have dropped to 40% and beyond 15, it will have then dropped to 20%.

The defib also has many other functions such as Smart Biphasic Therapy, built in self tests and a quick shock feature.

The HeartStart AED HS1 is now available on our website with a free backpack from our Infection Control Range. This could be the ideal offer if you were looking to put together a lifesaving kit for you workplace or community. Each bundle is priced at £850.00 +VAT. See below:
