Its host of features makes the FR2+ an extremely versatile and rugged defibrillator, enabling responders to potentially save the life of a coworker,friend, patient or fellow citizen under demanding circumstances.
The HeartStart FR2+ has come to be a trusted tool of professional responders and designated response teams in the workplace and public settings. Its clean, uncluttered design is optimized for fast, efficient operation and rapid delivery of defibrillation therapy.
Ideal for responders who are trained, drilled,and ready to help save a life now. The HeartStart FR2+ offers features that make hand-off to advanced life support (ALS) trained professionals seamless to ensure continuity of care for the patient. An ECG display is available, and the FR2+ can be configured to allow ALS responders to switch to a manual mode, giving them more decision-making control. And defibrillator pads adapters enable the pads to remain on the patient when transferring to many popular ALS manual defibrillators from Philips and other manufacturers. But don't be misled by its advanced capabilities.The HeartStart FR2+ is extremely easy to use. Its design is based on years of research refined through Philips human factors experts, and user testing with the full range of responders, from healthcare professionals to lay people. In fact, hundreds of thousands of citizens are already trained and ready to help save a life with the FR2+.
The HeartStart FR2+ is the right choice for harsh, outdoor, or mobile use. It combines natural sounding voice instructions that are loud and clear, with text prompts on a large, bright back-lit display. This makes it ideal if you anticipate use in noisy or poorlylit settings. And at just 4.7 pounds, it's incredibly small and lightweight so it won't weigh you down.
The FR2+ is designed to be highly flexible and versatile. You can tailor your FR2+ to match your specific response protocol.
The FR2+ can treat patients of any age. When equipped with special infant/child defibrillator pads that reduce the energy of the FR2+'s shock to a more appropriate level, you can safely treat a child or infant in cardiac arrest.
The reusable 3-leadwire FR2+ ECG assessment module enables the professional responder to proactively use the FR2+ to assess the rhythm of patients who are not in cardiac arrest, but are conscious, breathing, and suspected of being at risk for cardiac distress.This small, lightweight monitoring solution is ideal for in- and out-of-hospital patient transport, bike medics, situations requiring long or difficult travel, fire rigs that may be staffed on occasion by paramedics, clinics, and physicians' offices.
The HeartStart FR2+ is reliable and virtually maintenance-free. It automatically performs daily, weekly, and monthly self-tests of the battery, electrical components, and subsystems. A highly visible status indicator shows at a glance whether the FR2+ has passed its last self-test and is ready for use.
The FR2+ uses Philips' patented SMART Analysis algorithm to assess the patient's heart rhythm and determine if it is shockable. Research shows that for some patients, especially those in long-duration cardiac arrest, CPR prior to defibrillation may provide more benefit.1, 2, 3 At the discretion of the medical director, the defibrillator's SMART CPR algorithm can be configured to look at characteristics of a shockable heart rhythm and compute the likelihood that spontaneous circulation will return with an initial shock. Depending on the results, the caregiver is advised to provide either an immediate defibrillation shock or CPR first followed by a shock.
Research also suggests that the opportunity for survival can be improved if interruptions to CPR are minimized.4, 5 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. "6 The Quick Shock capability of the FR2+ readies the defibrillator within seconds (10 seconds typical) to deliver a shock, reducing the time between CPR and defibrillation.
When a shock is advised, the FR2+ prompts the user to deliver Philips' low-energy SMART Biphasic waveform, a highly effective defibrillation therapy that is also gentle to the heart. No other external defibrillation therapy has been supported by more published studies.
To help responders maintain their skills, Philips gives you a wide range of training solutions. When equipped with training pads and the rechargeable training and administration pack, you can use your FR2+ as a trainer. Its shock delivery capability is disabled while you train with ten scenarios.When you connect the FR2+ to a simulator or a special manikin that simulates an ECG rhythm, you can elicit realistic FR2+ responses to various heart rhythms for even more refined training. Philips also offers an economical AED trainer that comes with ten scenarios. An optional remote control enables instructors to pace the scenario to match their instruction, and to challenge the trainee with surprise scenario changes. Also available is the comprehensive AED Little Anne training system, featuring a manikin that gives the student feedback on pad placement.
To maintain high standards of response timeliness and quality, many organizations place a high premium on detailed retrospective event reporting.The FR2+ facilitates this with an optional data card that captures up to 8 hours of patient heart rhythm, defibrillator use and, if configured,voice recording of the event.The removable data card lets you produce a variety of reports using the HeartStart Event Review suite of software products, without taking your FR2+ out of service.
A five-year warranty and limited product indemnity comes with every HeartStart Defibrillator. Best of all, neither maintenance nor service contracts are required to maintain indemnification benefits. An extended two-year warranty is available. Coupled with the standard five-year warranty, the extended warranty gives you peace of mind,knowing your investment is protected for up to seven years.
