HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator Instruction Information

The HeartStart Onsite AED is easy to use and created with safety in mind. Detailed instructions are given audibly by the machine once the handle is pulled to remove the safety covering. These instructions are given in a soothing, calm, knowledgeable voice, which helps to keep the user calm under the stressful situation of dealing with a victim of cardiac arrest. Once the instructions are followed for attaching the HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator to the victim, the victim’s heart rate will be monitored by the machine. This will establish whether or not the patient needs the shock that the machine is created to give to save the life of a person experiencing cardiac arrest. If the victim’s heart function will not benefit from the use of the HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator, the machine will be unable to be activated. The HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator was created in this way to ensure the safety of anyone who may be around the product, including the user, the victim believed to be experiencing cardiac arrest, curious children, and anyone else the product comes into contact with.

When using the HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator, the audible instructions actually keep pace with the actions of the user. If the user does not complete one of the instructions, the machine rephrases and repeats the instruction so that it may be better understood by the user. There are also visual instructions that have been tested and proven to provide sufficient instruction if the user does not speak the language the machine’s audible instructions are spoken in. This creates an even greater ease of use, as well as insuring that the machine will be used with utmost accuracy.
Development of easy to use HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator.

Philips used extensive testing when creating the HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator to make this product easy to use and helpful to the situation by promoting a calm environment. Any action that was deemed confusing or hard to understand was refined by Philips to create this product. The instructions were established in short and to the point sentences which would decrease user confusion and stress. A reminder to call emergency services is included in the audible instructions given to the user by the HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator, in case this important step has been missed in the stressful and hectic environment created by cardiac arrest. The HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator is even equipped with CPR coaching at the push of a button to assist the user and the victim of cardiac arrest even further.
