Q: What causes SCA?
A: 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.
Q: What if I don’t know the proper technique?
A: 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.
Q: How soon must the defibrillator shock be administered?
A: 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.
Q: How do I know if a shock is needed?
A: 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.
Q: What if I don’t know where to put the pads?
A: 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.
Q: What do I tell the professionals when they arrive?
A: 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.
Q: How does OnSite assess heart rhythm?
A: 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.
Q: How does OnSite know how much energy to deliver?
A: 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.16
Q: Is training available?
A: 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 the OnSite Training Tool Kit, with
training videos and presentation materials that discuss
everything from setting up an AED program to replacing
your defibrillator’s battery.
Q: What is Philips background in defibrillators?
A: We are the worldwide leader in automated external
defibrillators (AEDs), having shipped almost one and
a half million AEDs. 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.
