Using the HeartStart OnSite Automated External Defibrillator AED is simple. Pulling the green handle activates the AED and its voice instructions and visual icons. These instructions are paced to your actions, to help guide you through the entire process—from placing each pad on the patient to delivering a defibrillation shock using the AED and performing CPR.
The AED cartridge contains two adhesive pads that are placed on the patient’s bare skin as indicated by the pictures on the pads. The pads are “smart” because they sense when they have been removed from the cartridge and when each has been applied to the patient, adjusting the voice instructions to your actions.
The HeartStart OnSite AED can be used on patients of any age, including infants and children. OnSite senses when the special infant/child SMART Pads Cartridge is installed. It automatically adjusts the AED to a lower energy level more appropriate for infants and children, and also provides coaching for performing infant/child CPR.
To practice your skills, a special training pads cartridge (adult or infant/child) can be installed in the defibrillator. It disables the defibrillator’s ability to shock, while walking you through patient care scenarios. This is called AED training pads
