Philips is a diversified technology company, focused on improving people’s lives through meaningful innovation. 

Philips aim to meet today’s challenges in healthcare by creating solutions that deliver better care to more people at lower cost and have developed their HeartStart devices to cover both a range of needs and budgets.  

One of Philips' most notable accolades is achieving over-the-counter FDA approval for their HS1 device. Rigorous testing demonstrated untrained responders are equally as successful as trained responders if using the HS1. Anyone trained or untrained can use the device with confidence. 

Effective CPR combined with a shock from a defibrillator is the only definitive treatment for someone who has suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Delivering treatment within 3-5 minutes increases the victim's survival chance from 6% to 74%. 

Why do electrode pads need replacing? 

Electrode pads have a shelf life of 1-5 years depending on the make and model of your defibrillator. 

If used beyond the expiration date, the gel covering the pads are likely to be ineffective in adhering to the skin to analyse the heart and deliver a shock if one is required. 

Why does a defibrillator need a replacement battery? 

Depending on what make and model your defibrillator is, batteries have a shelf life of 2-7 years. 

The battery is responsible for allowing the unit to carry out regular self-tests to ensure your defibrillator remains in working order. Batteries also provide the power needed to deliver a potentially life-saving shock to a person in cardiac arrest.

How often should the pads be changed on a Philips defibrillator?

All Philips adult and paediatric electrode pads have a shelf-life of up to 2 years.. Electrode pads are single-use only and should be replaced as soon as possible following a rescue. For this reason, we recommend having a spare set of electrode pads to ensure your defibrillator is always ready to be used in an emergency.

How do you check the battery on a Philips defibrillator?

All devices, including the Philips HS1 perform regular self-tests. As long as the status indicator on the device is blinking green, the AED has passed its self-test and is ready for immediate use.  The HS1 alerts you if it encounters a problem during a self-test. When pressed, the blue i-button instructs you if the pads or battery need to be replaced.

Where is the expiration date displayed on Philips AED pads?

If the AED pads are currently inserted into a Philips defibrillator the expiration date should be easy to spot beneath the clear cover on the Philips HeartStart HS1 defibrillator . If you have spare pads, then the use before date will be displayed on a sticker placed on the front of the package.
