Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator now available

Net Devices I just became aware of the fact that in mid-September the FDA approved the Philips Heart Start Home Defibrillator for home use without a prescription. The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator is an automated external defibrillator designed to be safe, reliable and easy to use. The HeartStart Home Defibrillator provides clear, calm voice instructions that guide responders through every step of the defibrillation process. With sudden cardiac arrest, every minute counts. Sudden cardiac arrest differs from a heart attack in that it's an electrical malfunction of the heart that triggers a fatally abnormal heart rhythm. The shock from a defibrillator is the most effective way to end sudden cardiac arrest. The American Heart Association advocates early access to defibrillators. Drugstore.com currently has the Philips Heart Start Home Defibrillator on sale for $1,350. One should never need it.

    I've actually tried out a few of the automated external defibrillators. The HeartStart is really easy to use.
