HYLINE SAFETY Offers the Philips Electronics line of Automated External Defibrillators.
When Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) strikes, the electrical system of the heart short circuits, causing the heart to quiver rather than pump in a normal rhythm. It typically results in the abnormal heart rhythm known as ventricular fibrillation (VF). It usually happens without warning and the majority of people have no previously recognized symptoms of heart disease. SCA most often happens at home. For the best chance of survival, a defibrillator should be used within 5 minutes. Yet, less than 5% survive largely because a defibrillator does not arrive in time. Although a defibrillator will not save every person who suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, many lives could be saved if more people could be reached more quickly.
Who should have a HeartStart? Anyone who wants a safer home or office. Consider the other essential safety equipment you own to protect your loved ones in case of an emergency, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, flashlights, first-aid kits. The HeartStart AED can save a life if sudden cardiac arrest should occur.
HeartStart was designed with you in mind. This award-winning device has been designed for virtually anyone to help save the life of a person who suffers a sudden cardiac arrest.
Like other pieces of safety equipment, you buy HeartStart hoping that you never have to use it. Yet in that moment you need it, HeartStart must be ready. It performs comprehensive daily self-tests. You can check its status at a glance.
Clear, calm voice instructions talk you through each step
HeartStart senses and adapts the instructions based on your actions
Using sophisticated technology, HeartStart quickly decides whether a shock is necessary. It is designed to deliver a shock only if needed
HeartStart will coach you through the steps of CPR. It provides very clear and simple instructions including a cadence (rhythm) for chest compressions.
How do I use the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator?
HeartStart is specifically designed for use by virtually anyone to help save a life. If you suspect that someone is in sudden cardiac arrest--they are not breathing normally and you can't wake the person--call 911 first. Then follow this three-step process: Pull, Place & Press.
1. Step 1--Pull the cartridge handle--it's marked "PULL" in large letters. This initiates the clear calm voice that will guide you through the process.
2. Step 2-- Place the pads on the patient's bare chest. The voice instructions tell you exactly what to do. HeartStart can even sense and adapt to your actions. If you are moving quickly, the voice prompts stay with you. If you are taking more time, HeartStart provides increasingly detailed instructions to help you place the pads. Once HeartStart senses that the pads have been applied to the skin, it automatically begins analyzing the patient's heart rhythm. HeartStart decides whether a shock is needed--you don't have to.
3. Step 3-- Press the shock button. If HeartStart decides a shock is needed, it will instruct you to press the flashing orange button HeartStart is designed to only let you deliver a shock if it determines one is needed. HeartStart even provides CPR coaching.
Essentially, that's how it works. You can feel confident that the defibrillator is providing easy-to-follow, straightforward direction and coaching. All you need is the desire to save a life. Check out the animated demo of the HeartStart Home Defibrillator in action.
Does insurance cover HeartStart? There are some medical conditions that may meet the criteria for medical necessity for a home defibrillator. Click here to download a list of these conditions and information to complete paperwork for insurance companies so you can talk with your doctor.
Due to the wide range of health insurance policies and patient conditions, Philips cannot guarantee that an insurer will cover or pay at any particular level.
Does the battery need recharging? The long-life lithium battery does not need recharging. It contains power cells of the same kind safely used in many other consumer products, such as cameras.
The battery typically lasts approximately four years in "standby mode." "Standby mode" means HeartStart is standing at the ready to help save a life if needed. Every day, HeartStart runs self-tests to check its battery, pads freshness and internal circuitry. If it ever detects a problem, such as a low battery, it chirps like your smoke alarm to alert you.
Can the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator treat an existing medical condition?
The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator is only intended for use in the treatment of the most common cause of sudden cardiac arrest, known as ventricular fibrillation (VF). VF occurs when the electrical system of the heart short circuits, causing the heart to quiver rather than pump in a normal rhythm.
If you have questions or concerns about your health, or an existing medical condition, please talk with your doctor. A defibrillator does not take the place of seeking medical care.
Why is a prescription no longer needed?
The HeartStart Home Defibrillator is the first and only home defibrillator available without a prescription, which means that it is considered safe and easy to use by virtually anyone with the materials provided in the package.
Does Philips provide product and technical support?
Yes. Philips has a telesupport line that is available from 8 am to 6pm eastern time. Representatives can answer questions you have about the HeartStart Home Defibrillator, or help you enroll in the HeartStart Support Program. Please call Philips at 1.866.DEFIBHOME (1.866.333.4246). or visit the HeartStart Home web site (www.HeartStartHome.com). In the event of a medical emergency, please remember to always call 911 first.
Is training needed to use HeartStart?
HeartStart comes with a "Quick Start" poster, an Owner's Manual, Quick Reference Guide and a short training videotape, "How To Use Your HeartStart Home Defibrillator," to help you get familiar with the device. Philips recommends that anyone who might use the HeartStart watch the video and read these materials.
Users should have training in CPR and defibrillator use. Many training organizations offer a combined course.
As an added bonus, HeartStart also comes with discounted coupons for CPR/AED training at the American Red Cross, American Heart Association or Medic First Aid.
Can I use Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator on myself?
You cannot use HeartStart on yourself. Victims of cardiac arrest are unconscious and not breathing normally.
If you have questions or concerns about your health, or an existing medical condition, please talk with your doctor. A defibrillator does not take the place of seeking medical care.
Does Medicare cover the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator?
Starting January 1, 2004, Medicare now covers automated external defibrillators and wearable defibrillators for specified at-risk patients.
Is the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator safe?
The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator was designed with safety in mind--safety of the victim, the user and those living in the household, including children and others who might be curious about the device.
HeartStart is designed to only deliver a shock if it determines one is needed. It will not deliver a shock to a person who doesn't need it. For the safety of the responder, it is important to follow the voice instructions and to make sure that no one touches the patient when a shock is delivered.
Can the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator be used on children?
Yes, HeartStart can be used on infants and children. HeartStart Infant/Child SMART pads cartridges are sold separately. A prescription is required. In fact, Philips defibrillators were the first automated external defibrillators available for use on children under the age of 8 or weighing less than 55 pounds.
HeartStart actually senses when the Infant/Child pads cartridge is installed. It automatically adjusts to deliver a lower energy level most appropriate for infants and children, and also provides coaching for performing CPR on a child.
The Infant/Child Pads are available by prescription only. Talk to your doctor.
What if I need to defibrillate a child, but I do not have the infant/child pads cartridge?
If you are not sure of a child's exact age or weight, or if infant/child pads are not available, do not delay treatment. Perform 1 minute of infant/child CPR, call 911, then apply the defibrillator. Use the adult pads, but place them on the child's chest and back. Remember that, with the adult pads on a child, the optional CPR coaching will be for an adult.
How do I return my HeartStart?
Philips offers a 30-day money back guarantee.
Does the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator come with a warranty?
Yes, it comes with a 5-year home warranty. Click here to read the full warranty.
What should I consider before purchasing HeartStart? You cannot use the HeartStart to treat yourself. Users may need to perform CPR. Responding to cardiac arrest may require you to kneel. Voice instructions and enclosed materials are in English. ** HeartStart provides audible and visible indicators when maintenance is required. **Contact Philips for information about other languages.
Can HeartStart be used on a person with a pacemaker or ICD?
It is all right to use the HeartStart on a person with an implanted device such as a pacemaker or ICD, but do not place the pads directly over the implant. You can tell where an implant is located by a lump in the skin and a scar.
It is also all right to use HeartStart on someone wearing an oxygen mask.
Philips Medical Heartstart Onsite Defibrillator
Each year sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) strikes approximately a quarter-million 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.
When sudden cardiac arrest strikes, the electrical system of the heart short-circuits, most often causing an abnormal rhythm known as ventricular fibrillation. Lacking proper blood flow, the person loses consciousness, stops breathing, and will die unless promptly treated. CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can help a person in cardiac arrest, but it alone cannot save lives. A "shock" from a defibrillator defibrillation therapy is needed to restore the heart's normal pumping rhythm. A victim's best chanceof surviving SCA is to receive that shock within 5 minutes of collapse.
HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator is designed to enable you to help save a life in extraordinary circumstances.
*Lightweight: Fully equipped at just 3.3 pounds. *Intuitive: Clean design and clear voice instructions instill the confidence thats needed when administering therapy to a person in cardiac arrest. *Ever-Ready: Powered by a long-life (4-year) disposable battery. Automated tests help ensure readiness. *Versatile: Available for use on anyone of any age, including children and infants. *Effective: Patented SMART Analysis heart rhythm assessment and SMART Biphasic defibrillation therapy, clinically proven in nearly 10 years of use. No other biphasic waveform is as well documented.
