Philips HeartStart FRx - robust and reliable
Sometimes, the unreal happens and a cardiac arrest can occur in your vicinity. For each minute that passes after a cardiac arrest, the risk of a fatal outcome is increased by almost 10%. Unfortunately, only 6% of those affected survive, but it is estimated that more than half can be saved if the correct treatment is commenced in time. In other words, a defibrillator can be the difference between life and death while waiting for an ambulance. With the Philips Heartstart FRx, you get a reliable and sturdy product that is suitable for many different environments and situations.
How the Philips FRx works
Philips Heartstart FRx is known as one of the market’s most easy-to-use defibrillators, which makes it highly popular. You start the device with a simple push of a button and are immediately guided by a clear voice that guides you through the entire process. This means that you are instructed on how to place ECG defibrillation pads to evaluate the patient’s heart rate.
During the patient analysis, the defibrillator evaluates whether defibrillation is appropriate and instructs you to deliver a shock – all you have to do is press a button. At the next stage, there is the option of a coaching function that guides you through CPR while you wait for an ambulance. The advantage is that the defibrillator monitors the patient and indicates if additional shocks are needed while you perform CPR. The constant patient monitoring ensures that you can focus on lifesaving while the Philips Heartstart FRx makes the decisions.
While the defibrillator is not in use, it performs self-tests where daily checks are performed on electrodes, battery function, and internal circuits. This ensures that the defibrillator is always ready to use and works as it’s supposed to when you need it.
A product for varied and difficult environments
The Philips Heartstart is very durable and therefore suitable for most environments.

Aside from the fact that the product is easy to use, it is easy to handle due to its low weight and small size.
