Ordinary person, extraordinary moment.
Each year sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) strikes nearly 424,000 people in the US, 700,000 people in Europe, and hundreds of thousands more worldwide. The majority of these people have no warning, since they show no prior symptoms. Sadly less than 6% survive, often because emergency medical services cannot reach them in time.
When SCA occurs, CPR is important, but it alone cannot restore a normal heart rhythm. A shock from a defibrillator is the only definitive way to restore the hearts normal pumping rhythm. The victims best chance of survival is to receive that shock within five minutes of collapse.
Philips HeartStart Defibrillators enable virtually anyone to treat the most common cause of SCA by delivering a shock quickly and effectively, whenever it happens, at work, play, while traveling, providing anyone the power to save a life.
Philips HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator: Easy to operate and maintain. To use, simply pull the green handle to engage the defibrillator and follow the voice instructions. Comprehensive CPR coaching is included. Is the only AED cleared by the FDA for Over the Counter sale without a prescription.
Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator: Very rugged and easy to use. Like the OnSite, it offers complete voice instruction and CPR coaching. The FRx uses SMART Pads designed for all ages. No additional pediatric pads are needed. Simply insert the infant/child key and it changes to infant/child mode.
