Philips FRx Defibrillator Features
Power to save a life. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, striking more than 340,000 victims each year. More people die from SCA than from breast cancer, prostate cancer, house fires, hand guns, traffic accidents and AIDS combined.
SCA can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere and sometimes in extreme conditions. Rely on the Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator to be up to the task. In the hands of those who get there first, CPR and an AED provides the power to save a life.
- The current national survival rate for SCA is less than five percent.
- The likelihood of successful resuscitation decreases by about 10% with every minute that passes.
- An additional 40,000 lives could be saved each year in the U.S. alone with widespread access to defibrillators.
For more than a century, Philips has pioneered technology that makes life better. Today, we’re taking this commitment one step further; creating products that not only enhance life, but also preserve it. The Philips FRx Defibrillator is the newest member of the HeartStart family of defibrillators designed with new technological advancements to help in treating the most common cause of SCA.
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 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.
SMART Technology, only from Philips. At the core of all HeartStart Defibrillators is SMART Biphasic technology. The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator’s biphasic waveform delivers a highly effective defibrillation shock that is also gentle to the heart. No other external defibrillation therapy has been supported by more published clinical data. SMART Analysis, a proven Philips technology for heart rhythm assessment, ensures that the FRx Defibrillator only shocks when it should.
SMART Analysis automatically assesses the victim’s hear t rhythm and is designed not to deliver a shock unless the rhythm is determined to be shockable — even if the shock button is pressed. What’s more, SMART Pads II enable the FRx to keep pace with the responder by adjusting to their actions.
Designed for real world use. The Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is exceptionally rugged. Designed to surpass rigorous testing requirements, the FRx withstands jetting water, loads up to 500 pounds and a one-meter drop onto concrete.
Built on a platform of proven ease-of-use. The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator was designed to be as easy to use as the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator and shares many of its features, including CPR Coaching and intuitive icon-driven operation. Although small and lightweight — just 3.5 pounds — the FRx is equipped to guide you through the resuscitation of a SCA victim.
The HeartStart FRx guides you through every step with clear, calm voice commands and descriptive visual icons. The FRx even reminds you to call emergency medical services (EMS). Pressing the blue i-button activates HeartStart CPR Coaching for assistance with CPR. The flashing icons and the Quick Reference Guide can be used to lead you through the defibrillation steps — even in situations where hearing voice instructions is a challenge.
Once EMS arrives, hand-off is fast and easy because the FRx is compatible with advanced defibrillators like the HeartStart MRx. With HeartStart adapters, our pads can be plugged into devices from other manufacturers to ensure continuity of care.
Reliability backed by Philips. The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is powered by an easy to install, long-life (four-year) battery, so you know the device is charged and ready. The device’s automated daily, weekly and monthly self-tests check the pads readiness, and verify functionality and calibration of circuits and systems. With over 85 tests, the FRx is one of the most comprehensive self-testing devices on the market and is virtually maintenance-free. The blinking green “Ready” light on the defibrillator is your assurance that the device is ready for use.
