For those who get there first, the Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is designed to be easy to use, rugged, and reliable for those who get there first. On the scene with law enforcement, on the field with student athletes or on the job with employees, the FRx Defibrillator is the solution for treating Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) from ventricular fibrillation in environments and conditions too demanding for many other defibrillators.
The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator carries innovation in its genes. Building on the successes of the other members of the HeartStart family of defibrillators, the FRx brings innovations to the treatment of SCA.
Extremely water and dust resistant, CPR coaching, device may be converted into a full-function AED training unit, reusable lifetime pediatric option.
Rugged design , Ready for real-world use
The HeartStart FRx was built to surpass rigorous testing requirements: withstanding jetting water, crushing loads of up to 500 pounds, and a one-meter drop onto concrete.
On-demand CPR coaching – Talks you through your training
The HeartStart FRx features CPR coaching and intuitive icon-driven operation. Calm, clear voice instructions are tailored to the responder’s actions, providing guidance during the resuscitation of an SCA victim.
Infant/child key – Simplify the rescue of a child
The infant/child key turns the HeartStart FRx into a pediatric defibrillator by adjusting the voice instructions and decreasing defibrillation therapy to treat infants and children. The same pad set works for adults, children, and infants.
Light weight – Easy to carry
At just 3.5 pounds, the HeartStart FRx is light and portable, allowing for easy transport. Its size and weight make it perfect for police officers, firefighters, and trained public servants.
Built-in self test – Ready when needed
Your HeartStart FRx goes through a 120-point test before it leaves the factory. On the job, it conducts self tests every single day, not just weekly. It performs over 80 different tests in all. Even the pads are tested for readiness.
SMART Biphasic therapy – Safely delivers maximum shock strength
Philips SMART Biphasic therapy uses a unique combination of high current – to increase effectiveness, and a lower energy dose – to decrease side effects that are harmful to a fragile heart.
Quick Shock feature – Minimize chest compression interruptions
CPR is even more vital to survival than previously realized. Rapidly delivering a shock after chest compressions is critical. The HeartStart FRx’s Quick Shock feature reduces the time between hands-off and shock delivery.
