Heartstart

Trusted technology that can turn anyone into a lifesaver.

Having an AED comes with the responsibility to ensure that it’s always ready.

In an emergency, your AED needs to be accessible, fully functioning, and ready. That’s a responsibility we take very seriously.

It’s why we supply the latest Philips HeartStart defibrillators.

Choosing the ideal AED solution

Reliability

Choose an AED from a reliable manufacturer of trusted technology.

Safety

Your AED must have the necessary safeguards to avoid causing harm to the patient, even when it’s used by an untrained person.

Speed

Select an AED that’s accessible and delivers rapid defibrillation in the case of emergencies.

Ease-of-Use

Can your chosen AED be used with confidence by people with no training? Does it come with clear, simple instructions?

Ventria Philips Logo

Based on these criteria, we have chosen the Philips HeartStart defibrillator. It’s reliable – providing you with the confidence needed to help save a life.

Philips Healthcare is a global AED market leader and is well-known for its quality and R&D investments. 2 Million AEDs (Automated External Defibrillator) have been sold worldwide. Studies have proven that the HeartStart defibrillator is designed to be the easiest to use and most reliable.1-5 

It is among the fastest in its class with confident shock delivery within 8 seconds. Effective analysis and shock delivery is proven by more than 40 published, peer-reviewed studies.2 The HeartStart AED performs more than 80 self-tests, including pads presence and function. It features pacemaker detection and is safe to use on conductive surfaces.

Life Guidance – Guides you through a cardiac emergency.

Philips AEDs are designed with Life Guidance, a simple step-by-step process designed to help you act confidently and decisively.

Life Guidance acts as your personal coach to guide you through a cardiac emergency, including detailed CPR coaching. If needed, the prompts will automatically be repeated or rephrased, and may include additional instructions to help you understand.

Smart Analysis.

SMART analysis automatically assesses the victim’s heart rhythm. Whether the victim is a man, woman, or child, it delivers the right amount of therapy when needed. Even if you press the shock button, it will only deliver therapy if the rhythm is determined to be shockable.

Ventria Quick Shock
Quick Shock- Reduces the critical time from CPR to shock.

Studies show that minimising time to shock after CPR may improve survival.⁶⁻¹⁰ With patented Quick Shock, HeartStart is among the fastest in its class at delivering shock treatment after CPR, typically in just eight seconds

Ventria Smart Analysis
Personalized Therapy.

A high current with low energy delivers the right shock every time. The two most common ways to talk about AED shock strength are by current (measured in amps) and energy (measured in joules). It is a common assumption that energy is the most important measurement but that is incorrect. You defibrillate a heart by driving current through it.

HeartStart AEDs are designed to deliver high current in their low-energy shocks to maximise effectiveness from the very first shock dose.
