HeartStart HS1 First Aid Defibrillator

For the ordinary person in the extraordinary moment
the HeartStart HS1 Defibrillator is  designed to be lightweight and easy to use

Overview

 
Simple to operate

Turns on with easy-to-use pull handle

Every HeartStart HS1 comes ready-to-rescue. The device is pre-installed in the carrying case and battery and pads are pre-installed in the device. Simply pull up the handle on the front of the AED to activate it.

 
Guided audio instructions

Talks you through your training

The HeartStart HS1 provides on-demand audio coaching. Calm, clear voice instructions are tailored to the responder’s actions, providing AED and CPR guidance during the resuscitation of a sudden cardiac arrest victim.

 

Smart Biphasic therapy

Safely delivers maximum shock strength

Philips SMART Biphasic therapy uses a unique combination of high current - to maximize effectiveness, and a lower energy dose - to minimize side effects that are harmful to a fragile heart.

 

Built-in self test

Ready when needed

Your HeartStart HS1 goes through a 120-point test before it leaves the factory. On the job, it conducts self tests every single day, not just weekly. It performs over 80 different tests in all. Even the pads are tested for readiness.

 

Quick Shock feature

Minimize chest compression interruptions

CPR is even more vital to survival than previously realized. Rapidly delivering a shock after chest compressions is critical. The HeartStart HS1’s Quick Shock feature reduces the time between hands-off and shock delivery.

 

Integrated SMART pads

Senses application to patient skin The pads are "smart" because they can sense that they have been removed from the cartridge and applied to the patient. This helps the HeartStart OnSite know at what point the user is in the response process.

 

Visual queues

Clear, intuitive icon driven operation

The HeartStart HS1’s graphics-based visual instructions are designed to communicate instantly, with minimum reading and interpretation. Users not fluent in the device’s language can follow easily.

Therapy

  • Adult defibrillation peak current: 32A (150J nominal) into a 50 ohm load. Pediatric defibrillation (with optional Infant/Child SMART Pads Cartridge): 19A (50J nominal) into a 50 ohm load.

Shock-to-Shock Cycle Time

  • Typically less than 20 seconds between shocks in a series.

Quick Shock

  • Able to deliver a shock after the end of a CPR interval, typically in eight seconds.

Voice Instructions

  • Detailed voice messages guide responder through use of the defibrillator.

CPR Coaching

  • Instructions for adult and infant/child CPR available at user’s option. Shock Delivery Via adhesive pads placed on patient’s bare skin as illustrated on pads.

Controls

  • Green SMART Pads cartridge handle, green On/Off button, blue i-button, orange Shock button.

Indicators

  • Ready light; blue i-button; caution light.

Physical Requirements

Sealing

  • Solid objects per EN60529 class IP2X Drip-proof per EN60529 class IPX1

Temperature

  • Operating: 32º - 122º F (0º - 50º C)
  • Standby: 50º - 109º F (10º - 43º C)

Humidity

  • Operating: 0% to 95% relative, non-condensing
  • Standby: 0% to 75% relative, non-condensing

Altitude

  • Operating: 0 to 15,000 ft (0 to 4,500 m)
  • Standby: 0 to 8,500 ft > 48 hours and 8,500 to 15,000 feet < 48 hours

Shock/Drop

  • Abuse Withstands 1 meter drop to any edge, corner or surface.

Vibration

  • Meets EN1789 random and swept sine, road ambulance specification in operating and standby states.

EMI (Radiated/Immunity)

  • Meets EN55011 Group 1 Level B Class B and EN61000-4-3.

Patient Analysis System

Patient Analysis

  • Evaluates patient ECG to determine if a rhythm is shockable. Rhythms considered shockable are ventricular fibrillation (VF) and certain ventricular tachycardias (VT) associated with lack of circulation. For safety reasons, some VT rhythms associated with circulation will not be interpreted as shockable, and some very low-amplitude or low-frequency rhythms will not be interpreted as shockable VF.

Sensitivity/Specificity

  • Meets AAMI DF80 guidelines and AHA recommendations for adult defibrillation (Circulation 1997;95:1677-1682).

Artifact Detection

  • The effects of pacemaker artifact and electrical noise are minimized with artifact detection.

Battery Type(M5070A)

  • 9 Volt DC, 4.2 Ah, composed of disposable long-life lithium manganese dioxide primary cells. Capacity Minimum 200 shocks or 4 hours of operating time (EN 60601-2-4:2003)

Install-By-Date

  • Battery is labeled with an install-by date of at least five years from date of manufacture.

Standby Life

  • Four years typical when battery is installed by the install-by date. (Will power the AED in standby state within the specified standby Temperature range, assuming one battery insertion test and no defibrillation uses.)
