Ease of Use.
Studies show that even untrained people can respond using the Philips HeartStart for defibrillation therapy.
Philips defibrillators are meant to be used by inexperienced responders under considerable stress. Meticulous human factors testing means a device designed to calm and lead responders; not to get in their way.
A System Status Ready Indicator flashes every three seconds to show that the complete system is operational and ready for use.
HeartStart OnSite (HS1) devices offers the inexperienced responder detailed CPR coaching to help them recall their training and to encourage performance of CPR according to current guidelines. Simply press the blue i-
The right voice.
Calm, clear voice instructions are designed to help instill the confidence that’s needed when treating a person in cardiac arrest.
Reminder to call for help.
We include an instruction to call emergency services, just in case the responder overlooked that critical step.
Detailed instructions, not wordy.
Voice instructions should be sufficiently detailed to take an untrained user through a rescue. Yet sentences must be short, and there should be no unnecessary words that do not contribute to understanding.
Instructions paced to your actions.
HeartStart defibrillators are able to know where the user is in the response and closely pace instructions accordingly. The HeartStart OnSite (HS1) have pads that can sense when they are first being touched and manipulated. The device will then adjust instructions accordingly to provide instructions appropriate to the user’s progress.
Instructions not followed are re-
When a voice instruction is not performed, the HeartStart AED recognizes it, and stays with the responder to invite them again to perform the step. So we express the instruction using different words that maybe the responder will better understand.
Most users rely on the voice instructions. However HeartStart AEDs also provide visual queues that are more graphical and less written. In user tests, respondents were actually able to rely on these graphical queues to perform a rescue in the absence of voice instructions.
To sum it up.
Simple to use, clear concise verbal coaching, always ready to use, self diagnostics, the most widely sold defibrillator in the world and made by a name you can trust PHILIPS.
