Design philosophy for the HS1 Defibrillators
The Philips HeartStart HS1
family of automated external
defibrillators (AEDs) include the HeartStart HS1
HeartStart OnSite, and the HeartStart Home.
The Philips HeartStart HS1
automated external Defibrillator
(AEDs) are designed specifically for use by the first people
responding to an emergency. They are reliable, easy to use,
and virtually maintenance free. The design allows these AEDs
to be used by people with no medical training in places
where defibrillators have not traditionally been used. In
fact, the HeartStart Home was the first AED cleared by the
United States Food and Drug Administration for sale without
a prescription.Factors that had to be considered in their
design included the fact that an AED might not be used very
often, might be subjected to harsh environments, and
probably would not have personnel available to perform
The HS1 AEDs were not designed to replace the manual
defibrillators used by more highly trained individuals.
Instead, they are intended to complement the efforts of
medical personnel by allowing the initial shock to be
delivered by the first person to arrive at the scene.
Design features of the HS1 AEDs
Reliability and Safety
FAIL-SAFE DESIGN — The HS1 AEDs are intended to detect a
shockable rhythm and instruct the user to deliver a shock if
needed. They will not allow a shock if one is not required.
DAILY AUTOMATIC SELF-TEST — The HS1 AEDs perform daily as
well as weekly and monthly self-tests to help ensure they
are ready to use when needed. An active LED Ready light
serves as a status indicator and demonstrates at a glance
that the unit has passed its last self-test and is
therefore ready to use.
ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS — Environmental tests were
conducted to prove the HS1 AEDs’ reliability and ability to
operate in conditions relevant to expected use.
NON-RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM BATTERY — The HS1 long-life
battery pack M5070A was designed for use in an emergency
environment and is therefore small, lightweight, and safe to
use. The battery pack contains multiple 2/3A size, standard
lithium camera batteries. These same batteries can be
purchased at local drug stores for use in other
consumer products. These batteries have been proven to be
reliable and safe over many years of operation. The HS1
battery pack uses lithium manganese dioxide (Li/MnO2)
technology and does not contain pressurized sulfur dioxide.
The battery pack meets the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency's Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure. All
battery cells contain chemicals and should be recycled at
an appropriate recycling facility in accordance with local
QUICK SHOCK — The HS1 can deliver a defibrillation shock
very quickly – typically within 8 seconds – after the end of
a patient care pause.
SMALL AND LIGHT — The biphasic waveform technology used in
the HS1 AEDs has allowed them to be small and light. They
can easily be carried and operated by one person.
SELF-CONTAINED — Both the standard and hard-shell carry
cases for the HS1 have room for an extra Defibrillator
Cartridge and an extra battery.
VOICE PROMPTS — The HS1 AEDs provide clear, calm, audible
prompts that guide the user through the process of using the
CPR COACHING — In its default configuration, the HS1 AEDs
provide basic verbal instructions for performing
cardiopulmonary resuscitation, including hand placement,
rescue breathing, compression depth and timing, provided by
the HS1 when the flashing blue i-button is pressed
during the first 30 seconds of a patient care pause. If the
Infant/Child Pads Cartridge is inserted in the HS1, the CPR
Coaching provided will be for infant/child CPR.
PRE-CONNECTED PADS — The HS1 uses a pre-installed HeartStart
SMART Pads Cartridge. The HeartStart Infant/Child Pads
Cartridge is designed for use in the event defibrillation is
required for an infant or child under 55 pounds and 8 years
old. The AED can be turned on by pulling the green Pads
Cartridge handle, as well as by using the green On/Off button.
CAUTION LIGHT — When the HS1 is in use and is analyzing the
patient’s heart rhythm, a triangular Caution light on the
front of the HS1 flashes to alert the user not to
touch the patient. When the HS1 advises a shock, the
Caution light stops flashing and stays on as a reminder not
to touch the patient during shock delivery.
I-BUTTON — The HS1 has a blue information button
(i-button) on the front. When it is on solid (without
flashing), it is an indicator that it is safe to touch the
patient. When the button flashes the user can press it to
get information such as summary data about the last use or
(default) CPR Coaching.
SHOCK BUTTON — The orange Shock button on the
front of the HS1 bears a lightning bolt symbol to identify
it. It flashes when the unit has charged for a shock and
directs the user to press the button to deliver a shock by
pressing the Shock button.
