Flexible enough for career and volunteer EMS

“Our volunteer fire and rescue personnel have varying levels of experience and skills. The FRx is extremely easy to operate. Once you open the case, turn it on, and apply the pads, the voice coaching walks you through the entire process. Secondly, most of the county’s ALS providers and EMS transport agencies use the Philips HeartStart MRx ALS Monitor/Defibrillator.”

Shenandoah County Fire and Rescue (SCFR)

With a growing call volume, Shenandoah County Fire & Rescue (SCFR) needed to expand their reach and shorten their response time. But with an emergency team that included paid professionals and volunteer staff, they needed AEDs that were flexible enough for all expertise levels.

Rich clinical information to drive patient care

To provide quality emergency care, you need clear, accurate, easy-to-interpret information. With predictive tools, real-time feedback, and data management that streamlines your workflow, you have the tools you need for fast, confident decisions.

Predictive tools support STEMI decision-making

The Philips DXL 12-Lead ECG algorithm supports confident STEMI decision-making and speeds triage. One score helps predict the probability a patient is suffering from acute cardiac ischemia, while another helps predict the outcome with and without thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction (AMI).


With clear, accurate, easy-to-interpret information, you can make fast, confident decisions about on-going care.

Clear feedback improves CPR compressions


When a person suffers from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has a direct effect on the outcome. The pace, depth, and degree of release between compressions all make a difference.


The Q-CPR tool analyzes your compressions. It gives you immediate, audiovisual feedback to help you deliver effective CPR.

Easy data management improves your response


Simplifying your workflow and improving your efficiency means you can focus on providing care. With solutions that can download your data and send it where it needs to go, review events for performance improvement, and wirelessly transfer data, you can focus on using your data instead of managing it.
