The HeartStart FRx defibrillator has an advanced Life Guidance feature to help guide the rescuer to treat sudden cardiac arrest. The unique infant/child key allows use of the same pads for both an adult or child. With easy set-up, clear voice prompts, and rugged design, HeartStart FRx is designed for on-the-spot responders.
On the scene with law enforcement, on the field with student athletes, or on the job with employees, the FRx is the solution for treating SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) in demanding environments and conditions. Lightweight, rugged and reliable, it can withstand rough handling, extreme temperatures, dust or wet environments.
The HeartStart FRx 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 more than 85 self-tests regularly and can go four years between battery replacements.
If you need help with CPR, Life Guidance 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. If the Infant/Child key is inserted, the CPR instructions change to ones that are appropriate for children.
The HeartStart FRx features a unique Infant/Child Key that allows you to use the same pads for both adults and children. Simply insert the key into the FRx. The defibrillator automatically adjusts the shock strength and adapts the Life Guidance to provide pad placement and CPR instructions appropriate for children – all without the need for different pads.
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 AED 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.
