Save time, save a life
Integrated SMART pads placed on the victim’s bare skin sense and adapt the defibrillator’s instructions to your actions every step of the way. With patented Quick Shock, the HeartStart Home Defibrillator is among the fastest in class at delivering shock treatment after CPR.*
Personalized therapy, enhanced care
The HeartStart Home Defibrillator can be used on patients of any age, including infants and children.** It automatically determines if a shock is necessary and provides the right therapy for each individual patient.
Life Guidance features provide clear voice instructions
Just pull the green handle to activate the defibrillator and its voice instructions are paced to your actions to help guide you through the entire process – from placing each pad on the patient to delivering a defibrillation shock and performing CPR.
Integrated SMART Pads
SMART pads II guide the defibrillator to adapt instructions to the pace of the responder so as not to overwhelm, run ahead or slow them down. In addition to being repeated, prompts are rephrased and include additional instructions to help understanding.
Patented Quick Shock
With patented QuickShock, the HeartStart Home Defibrillator is among the fastest in class at delivering shock treatment after CPR – typically in 8 seconds.
SMART Analysis automatically assesses the victim’s heart rhythm and is designed to deliver therapy only if the rhythm is determined to be shockable – even if the Shock button is pressed.
