Royal Philips Electronics announced that it has received a 2003 "Best of What's New" award for its HeartStart Home Defibrillator, a portable defibrillator for home use, in an annual competition conducted by Popular Science.

Each year, Popular Science selects 100 winners in 12 categories that represent a significant step forward in their class. Recognized in the Personal Health category, the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator is designed specifically for the home to provide treatment for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming a quarter million lives each year.

"We are honored to win a coveted 'Best of What's New' award from one of the world's largest and most respected science and technology publication," said Deborah DiSanzo, vice president and general manager for cardiac resuscitation at Philips Medical Systems. "Philips carefully designed the HeartStart Home Defibrillator to be the industry's easiest-to-use defibrillator. We are dedicated to helping people in emergency situations use technology successfully."

This year's "Best of What's New" award judges evaluated more than 1,000 entries. The winners will be featured in a special editorial section of the December issue of Popular Science, which will be available at newsstands on November 11. Winners will also compete for a "Reader's Choice" award to be announced in January.
