For the ordinary person in the extraordinary moment the HeartStart HS1 Defibrillator is designed to be lightweight and easy to use.
Turns on with easy-to-use pull handle
Every HeartStart HS1 comes ready-to-rescue. The device is pre-installed in the carrying case and battery and pads are pre-installed in the device. Simply pull up the handle on the front of the AED to activate it.
Guided audio instructions
Talks you through your training
The HeartStart HS1 provides on-demand audio coaching. Calm, clear voice instructions are tailored to the responder’s actions, providing AED and CPR guidance during the resuscitation of a sudden cardiac arrest victim.
Smart Biphasic therapy
Safely delivers maximum shock strength
Philips SMART Biphasic therapy uses a unique combination of high current – to maximize effectiveness, and a lower energy dose – to minimize side effects that are harmful to a fragile heart.
Built-in self test
Ready when needed
Your HeartStart HS1 goes through a 120-point test before it leaves the factory. On the job, it conducts self tests every single day, not just weekly. It performs over 80 different tests in all. Even the pads are tested for readiness.
Quick Shock feature
Minimize chest compression interruptions
CPR is even more vital to survival than previously realized. Rapidly delivering a shock after chest compressions is critical. The HeartStart HS1’s Quick Shock feature reduces the time between hands-off and shock delivery.
Integrated SMART pads
Senses application to patient skin The pads are “smart” because they can sense that they have been removed from the cartridge and applied to the patient. This helps the HeartStart OnSite know at what point the user is in the response process.
Clear, intuitive icon driven operation
The HeartStart HS1’s graphics-based visual instructions are designed to communicate instantly, with minimum reading and interpretation. Users not fluent in the device’s language can follow easily.
- Smart Pads are able to sense whether they have been removed from the cartridge and placed on the patient’s chest so as to ensure that the voice prompts keep pace with you
- Smart Biphasic – Low energy 150-joule shock. Proven performance in published studies of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Recommended in international resuscitation guidelines as acceptable, safe and useful, and intervention of choice
- Smart Analysis – So accurate that HeartStart is the only automated external defibrillator approved for use on children as well as adults
- Always Ready – Comprehensive automatic self-tests check all the heartStart’s vital functions on a daily, weekly and monthly schedule, so as to ensure that HeartStart is always ready for emergency life saving
- Easy to Use – calming natural voice instructions coach the first aider through the steps of first aid defibrillation and CPR
- Fast to Learn – So simple to operate that a first aider with minimal training can potentially save a life
- 8 Year Warranty
- Waveform: Truncated Exponential Biphasic. Waveform parameters adjusted as a function of each patient’s impedance
- Therapy: Adult defibrillation peak current: 32A (150J nominal) into a 50 ohm load. Paediatric defibrillation (with optional Infant/Child SMART Pads Cartridge): 19A (50J nominal) into a 50 ohm load
- Shock-to-Shock Cycle Time: Typically less than 20 seconds between shocks in a series
- Quick Shock: Able to deliver a shock after the end of a CPR interval, typically in eight seconds
- Voice Instructions: Detailed voice messages guide responders through use of the defibrillator
- CPR Coaching: Instructions for adult and infant/child CPR available at user’s option
- Shock Delivery: Via adhesive pads placed on patient’s bare skin as illustrated on pads
- Controls: Green SMART Pads cartridge handle, green On/Off button, blue i-button, orange Shock button
- Indicators: Ready light; blue i-button; caution light
- EMI (Radiated/Immunity): Meets EN55011 Group 1 Level B Class B and EN61000-4-3
- Patient Analysis: Evaluates patient ECG to determine if a rhythm is shockable. Rhythms considered shockable are ventricular fibrillation (VF) and certain ventricular tachycardias (VT) associated with lack of circulation. For safety reasons, some VT rhythms associated with circulation will not be interpreted as shockable, and some very low-amplitude or low-frequency rhythms will not be interpreted as shockable VF.
- Sensitivity/Specificity: Meets AAMI DF80 guidelines and AHA recommendations for adult defibrillation (Circulation 1997;95:1677-1682)
- Battery Type(M5070A): 9 Volt DC, 4.2 Ah, composed of disposable long-life lithium manganese dioxide primary cells
- Capacity: Minimum 200 shocks or 4 hours of operating time (EN 60601-2-4:2003)
- Standby Life: Four years typical when battery is installed by the install-by date. (Will power the AED in standby state within the specified standby Temperature range, assuming one battery insertion test and no defibrillation uses.)
