Protecting kids, parents and teachers

An estimated 5,000-7,000 children in the U.S. succumb to sudden cardiac arrest annually, 6 many related to sporting events.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, striking more than 340,000 victims each year, and hundreds of thousands more 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, ywhere 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, it provides the power to save a life.

The Philips HeartStart

FRx Defibrillator

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 no only enhance life, but also preserve it The Philips FRx Defibrillator [s 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 HeartSnrt FRx Defibrillator [s designed to be easy to use, rugged and reliable for those who get there first. On the scene with Äw 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 HeartSürt family of defibrillators, the FRx brings innovations to the treatment of SCA

The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator brings innovations to the treatment of SCA.

Preconnected SMART Pads II

Pads for all patients. Save valuable time in an emergency with preconnected pads for use on adults and children. SMART Pads II eliminate the expense of having to purchase different pads sets for different patient ypes. Whats more. SMART Pads II enable the FRx to keep pace with responders by adjusting to their actions.

Infant/Child Key

Simply insert the Infant/Child Key into the FRx to signal to the device that yoLfre treating an infant or a child. The defibrillator adjusts to provide special pads placement and CPR instructions. The pads icons also flash to show you the appropriate pads placement and the device reduces the shock energy to a level more appropriate for an infant or a child (less than 55 pounds or 8 years of age).

Wireless Data Transfer

The FRx provides a mobile, wireless solution for data management using the palms handheld platform. It features an infrared data port for easy transmission of information without cables or hardwire compatibility issues.

CPR Coaching

The HeartStart FRx offers the industry first and only CPR Coaching feature for use on adults and children. CPR Coaching reminds the responder of CPR basics through detailed voice instructions.

Proven therapy

At the core of all HeartStart Defibrillators [s SMART Biphasic technology. The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator's biphasic waveform delivers a highly effective defibrillation shock that [s also gentle to the heart. No other external defibrillation therapy has been supported by more published clinical data.7

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 victjmÉ heart rhythm and is designed not to deliver a shock unless the rhythm is determined to be shockable — even if the Shock button is pressed.

And with patented Quick Shock the FRx is fistest in class at delivering a shock after CPR Studies show that minimizing time to shock after CPR may improve survival.As American Heart Association Guidelines 2005 notes, "Reduction in the interval from compression to shock delivery by even a few seconds can increase the probability of shock success."8

Designed for real world use

The Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is exceptionally ruued. Designed to surpass rigorous testing requirements, the FRx withsünds 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 — lust 3.5 pounds — the FRx is equipped to direct 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 pluued into devices from other manufacturers to ensure continuity of care.

Providing a complete, reliable solution

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 [s charged and ready. The device's automated daily, weekly and monthly self-tests check the pads readiness, and verfr functonaliy 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 pur assurance that the device is ready for use.
