Design Philosophy for HeartStart AEDs The HeartStart AEDs are designed specifically to be used by the first people responding to an emergency. It is reliable, easy to use, and virtually maintenance free. The design allows HeartStart AEDs to be used by people with no medical training in places where defibrillators have not raditionally been used. In order to accomplish this, consideration was given to the fact that an AED might not be used very often, may be subjected to harsh environments, and probably would not have personnel available to perform regular maintenance. The HeartStart AED was not designed to replace the manual defibrillators used by more highly trained individuals. Instead, it was 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. Some models of HeartStart AEDs can be configured for advanced mode use, to allow the device to be used as a manual Defibrillator. This can be beneficial for transitioning the patient care from a lay rescuer to more highly trained medical personnel. Design Features of HeartStart AEDs Reliability and Safety Fail-Safe Design - The HeartStart AED is intended to detect a shockable rhythm and deliver a shock if needed. It will not allow a shock if one is not required. Rugged Mechanical Design - The HeartStart AED is built with high-impact plastics, has few openings, and incorporates a rugged defibrillation pads connector and battery interface. Using the carry case provides additional protection as well as storage for extra sets of pads and a spare battery. Daily Automatic Self-Test - The HeartStart AED performs a daily self-test to help ensure it is ready to use when needed. An active status indicator demonstrates at a glance that the unit is working and ready to use. Environmental Parameters - Extensive environmental tests were conducted to prove the HeartStart AED’s reliability and ability to operate in conditions relevant to expected use. Non-Rechargeable Lithium Battery - The HeartStart AED battery pack was designed for use in an emergency environment and is therefore small, lightweight, and safe to use. Each 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 HeartStart AED 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 and may be disposed of with normal waste.
