The Philips Heartstart FRx AED Defibrillator arrives practically ready for rescue. Everything is connected and in place. Just pull the green tab to start the self-test that confirms its readiness for use. Once initiated, the FRx is easy to maintain. It performs a series of automatic self-tests, including daily, weekly, and monthly self-tests to check pad readiness and verify functionality and calibration of circuits and systems, and it can go up to four years between battery replacements. Detailed defibrillation guidance so you know what to do.
The FRx tells you exactly what to do. To deliver a shock, place the pads on bare skin as shown in the placement diagram. The Philips Heartstart FRx AED Defibrillator determines if a shock is needed and if so, prompts you to press the orange shock button. The voice commands repeat and rephrase if you need additional help. Flashing icons and a reference guide help if you’re in a noisy setting.
Complete CPR assistance for BLS-trained rescuers. If you need help with CPR, the Philips Heartstart FRx AED Defibrillator gives instructions and audio cues that tell you how to do it. It guides you through the appropriate number, rate, and depth of chest compressions, as well as how to perform rescue breaths, as recommended by the American Heart Association.² If the Infant/Child Key is inserted, the instructions adapt to CPR instructions that are appropriate for an infant or child.
