Philips Heartstart HS1 is one of the most popular defibrillators on the market. It is easy to use because of the step-by-step voice instructions that guides the user through the entire process of analysis, defibrillation and CPR. Philips Heartstart HS1 comes with the defibrillation pads and battery already installed, and it performs daily self-tests to ensure it is ready to use when needed. It will inform you if anything is broken or if the battery and/or pads needs to be replaced. This makes it virtually maintenance-free and you can be sure it works when a life-threatening situation occurs.
For your defibrillator, you also get a protecting case containing equipment you need when handling a cardiac arrest. For example a respiratory mask to simplify artificial respiration, and a pair of fabric scissors to cut open the ill person’s clothes, before giving chest compressions.
The package also includes a wall mount made from sturdy stainless steel. The wall mount is suitable for dust and moisture-free environments where a defibrillator cabinet is not required. By mounting the defibrillator to the wall and marking it with clear signs, it will be easy to find in case of an emergency.
