Is the Philips OnSite Defibrillator safe to use?
Absolutely! It was designed with safety in mind — of the victim, the user, and those living in the household, including children and others who might be curious about the device. The Philips OnSite Defibrillator was designed so that it will only deliver a shock if it determines that one is needed. It will NOT deliver a shock to a person who does not need one — even if you press the shock button! For your safety, it is important that you follow the directions given by the unit and to make sure that no one is touching the victim when a shock is delivered.
