Philips  Product Detail
Model: HeartStart XL

The Philips HeartStart XL Monitor/Defibrillator, at just under 14 lbs., is easily transported throughout the hospital to the site where cardiac care is needed. A combination manual device with automated external defibrillator capabilities, HeartStart XL enables the first caregiver on the scene, whether an ALS or BLS clinician, to deliver lifesaving defibrillation therapy.

Philips HeartStart Defibrillators enable system-wide standardization and consistency of care. All HeartStart Defibrillators feature Philips’ patented low-energy SMART Biphasic waveform, and use a 3-shock, 150 Joule protocol for adults in ventricular fibrillation (VF). This technology is proven effective in emergency resuscitation, exhibiting superior performance at terminating VF when compared with monophasic waveforms.

In AED mode, voice prompts and text messages guide BLS users through the defibrillation process, while the HeartStart XL continuously monitors and displays the patient's ECG.

Upon the arrival of ALS personnel, HeartStart XL is easily switched from AED to manual mode, allowing operators to access the unit's advanced therapeutic features such as selectable energy (from 2 to 200 Joules), non-invasive pacing (optional), SpO2 (optional) and synchronized cardioversion.
