For the extraordinary moment.
With access to the right equipment and support, everyone can help save a life.
Philips HeartStart OnSite defibrillator with Life Guidance acts as your personal coach to guide you through a cardiac emergency with a simple, step-by-step process. Adaptive instructions keep you on track, and intelligent sensors automatically deliver the right therapy, helping give you the confidence to lead the way to save a life.
Ready to act. Ready to go.
Designed for the ordinary person in the extraordinary moment, OnSite is ready to act and ready to go. It allows virtually anyone to treat the most common cause of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) by delivering a shock quickly and effectively, wherever SCA happens.
When someone experiences SCA, you should act quickly, but calmly. To help you remain calm and focused, we’ve equipped OnSite with integrated SMART Pads. Just place the SMART Pads on the person’s bare skin, and they will provide feedback to the AED so it can adapt its voice instructions to your actions and your pace. The SMART Pads sense when they have been placed on the patient and when you’ve completed each step. The system won’t announce the next step until you are ready. Prompts are repeated and rephrased, and include additional instruction to aid understanding. You don’t need to worry about feeling rushed, overwhelmed, or slowed down.
Personalized therapy. Enhanced care.
OnSite is designed for use on anyone, with features that personalize therapy.
SMART Analysis automatically assesses the person’s heart rhythm and will only deliver a shock if it is needed — even if the Shock button is pressed. You don’t need to worry about shocking someone unnecessarily.
OnSite is made for people who have never used a defibrillator before. The first and only AED available without a prescription, it is designed to be the easiest to set up and use, and the
most reliable defibrillator available
Frequently asked questions
What causes SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest)
SCA occurs when the electrical system of the heart becomes chaotic, causing it to stop beating effectively. Lacking proper blood flow, the person becomes unresponsive and stops breathing normally. CPR is important, but it alone cannot restore a normal heart rhythm. A shock from a defibrillator is the most effective way to restore the heart’s normal pumping rhythm.
What if I don’t know the proper technique?
OnSite's Life Guidance will lead you through all the steps, and special sensors in the pads will provide feedback so that the instructions are tailored to you.
How soon must the defibrillator shock be administered?
The person's best chance of survival is to receive that shock within five minutes of collapse. A defibrillator will not save every person who experiences SCA, but more lives could be saved if those affected were reached more quickly. Your quick response makes a real difference.
How do I know if a shock is needed?
The defibrillator assesses the patient's heart rhythm. If a shock is advised, it directs you to press the flashing orange Shock button. If the defibrillator determines that a shock is not called for, you cannot deliver a shock, even if you press the Shock button.
What if I don't know where to put the pads?
The SMART Pads cartridge contains two adhesive pads that have pictures on them to show you where to place the pads on the person's bare skin, and voice instructions will remind you to look at the pictures. The pads are "smart" because they sense when they have been removed from the cartridge, peeled from their liners, and applied to the patient, causing the voice instruction
to adjust to your actions.
What do I tell the professionals when they arrive?
They will know what questions to ask you. If an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) responder needs a summary of care, it can be retrieved from the defibrillator's internal memory. The EMS provider simply presses the i-button, and OnSite will verbally recount events from its last clinical use.
How does OnSite assess heart rhythm?
OnSite includes highly proven Philips technology for heart rhythm assessment, called SMART Analysis. SMART Analysis is a sophisticated algorithm that simultaneously evaluates several attributes of a person's heart rhythm to determine if the rhythm is shockable.
How does OnSite know how much energy to deliver?
A technology called SMART Biphasic Impedance Compensation helps OnSite deliver the right amount of current and energy. Smart Biphasic is the first biphasic therapy with sufficient evidence to be classed "standard of care" and "intervention of choice" by the American Heart Association. SMART Analysis and SMART Biphasic's effectiveness are backed by over 40 published, peer-reviewed studies.
Is training available?
Yes. A special training SMART Pads cartridge can be installed in the defibrillator. It disables the defibrillator's ability to shock, while walking you through patient care scenarios. We also offer easily accessible, online training that discusses everything from setting up an AED
program to replacing your defibrillator's battery.
What is Philips background in defibrillators?
We are the worldwide leader in automated external defibrillators (AEDs), having shipped over 1.25 million AED units. Our AEDs are on the job, having logged over 50 billion daily self-tests. We make defibrillators that are used by healthcare professionals every day. While
OnSite is designed for anyone to use, it has the same ability to start a heart as our AEDs that are designed for expert use.
