Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator
The FRx defibrillator features Life Guidance intuitive, step-by-step voice instructions, including CPR coaching, to help give responders the confidence that’s needed when treating a cardiac arrest. A clear, calm voice and descriptive visual icons guide you through every step, from pad placement to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and shock delivery. The voice prompts are paced to your actions, so that you don’t need to worry about feeling rushed, overwhelmed, or slowed down.
Just press the blue i-button for assistance with CPR, and Life Guidance provides instructions and audio cues for the appropriate number, rate, and depth of chest compressions, as well as for each breath. If the Infant/Child Key is inserted, the instructions adapt to CPR instructions that are appropriate for an infant or child.
To deliver a shock, simply place the pads on bare skin where indicated by the placement diagram, and press the orange Shock button when prompted. Flashing icons and a quick reference guide augment the voice instructions, so you’ll know what to do even in a noisy setting.
The FRx even reminds you to be sure that emergency medical services (EMS) has been called. And once EMS arrives, hand-off is fast and easy because the FRx pads are compatible with advanced defibrillators from Philips and other manufacturers. Special adapters allow our pads to be plugged into advanced care devices to provide continuity of care.
