Philips HeartStart XL Defibrillator – Monitor
The Philips HeartStart XL Defibrillator is an easy-to-use, compact, lightweight defibrillator with monitor and AED capabilities for ALS and BLS clinicians. It is designed to meet a wide variety of defibrillation and monitoring needs in one portable device.
At just under 14 pounds, the HeartStart XL 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 potentially lifesaving defibrillation therapy.
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, the Philips HeartStart XL Defibrillator 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.
