Philips HeartStart Defibrillator - Why Is It So Popular?

Philips HeartStart DefibrillatorThe Phillips HeartStart Defibrillator has become a hugely popular product. It is perennially Number One on the Amazon.com Bestsellers in Defibrillators rankings. In fact, Phillips defibrillators and Phillips defibrillator accessories comprised, at the time of writing, more than 70 per cent of the items on the list.

In addition, the Phillips HeartStart has attracted more than 75 customer reviews at Amazon.com, with nearly 90 per cent of these four-star or five-star reviews.

Early in 2005, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos spoke at Stanford University (no longer online):

The most-wished-for product in the [Amazon.com] health and personal care category is the Philips HeartStart Home Automated External Defibrillator, which is priced at $1,495, he said. Second on the list is a Panasonic Nose and Ear Groomer.

It has won numerous awards, including a Medical Design Excellence Award, Industrial Design Excellence Award, a "Best Product of the Year" award from Fortune magazine and "Best of What's New" award from Popular Science magazine.

In addition, it has received many laudatory reviews. The Galt website wrote:

The two big competitors to the HeartStart Home Defibrillator are the Zoll AED Plus Package Defibrillator and the Welch Allyn AED 10 Automated External Defibrillator. Both are priced above the Philips Heartstart but neither get any better reviews from owners or medical experts. What most Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) will tell you is that having some training with a defibrillator is really important.

We suggest you take the HeartSaver AED Training course - you can get more details online at www.heartstarthome.com. Philips does offer the Adult SMART Pads Practice Kit which is also available on Amazon. Learning CPR is another must and that is provided for with the coupons in the package. Philips HeartStart Defibrillators are award winning devices and the market leader in resuscitation products. I watched the interactive demo on the website and we suggest this to everyone who is going to buy the product or that is even considering it.
