The customer or user of the OnSite should assure that it is used in such an environment.
  • Page 67 Generally, AEDs are sometimes susceptible to interference generated by patient and/or responder motion in environments in which a high static electric field is present (e.g., low humidity, synthetic carpets, etc.). As a safety measure, Philips AEDs incorporate a patented method to sense possible corruption of the ECG signal by such interference and to respond by directing the user to stop all motion.
