Built for rugged environments

Built for rugged environments

On the scene with law enforcement, on the field with student athletes, or on the job with employees, the FRx is the solution for helping treat victims of suspected sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in demanding environments and conditions. Lightweight, rugged, and reliable, it can withstand rough handling, extreme temperatures, dust, or wet environments.
Easily used on infants and children

Easily used on infants and children

The HeartStart FRx features a unique Infant/Child Key that allows you to use the same pads for both adults and children. Simply insert the key into the FRx. The defibrillator automatically adjusts the shock strength and adapts to provide pad placement and CPR instructions appropriate for children, according to American Heart Association guidelines—all without the need for different pads.
Low maintenance to be ready when you need it

Low maintenance to be ready when you need it

The HeartStart FRx arrives practically ready for rescue. Everything is connected and in place. Just pull the green tab to start the self-test that confirms its readiness for use. Once initiated, the FRx is easy to maintain. It performs a series of automatic self-tests, including daily, weekly, and monthly self-tests to check pad readiness and verify functionality and calibration of circuits and systems, and it can go up to four years between battery replacements.
Detailed defibrillation guidance so you know what to do

Detailed defibrillation guidance so you know what to do

The FRx tells you exactly what to do. To deliver a shock, place the pads on bare skin as shown in the placement diagram. The AED determines if a shock is needed and if so, prompts you to press the orange shock button. The voice commands repeat and rephrase if you need additional help. Flashing icons and a reference guide help if you’re in a noisy setting.
Complete CPR assistance for BLS-trained rescuers

Complete CPR assistance for BLS-trained rescuers

If you need help with CPR, the FRx defibrillator gives instructions and audio cues that tell you how to do it. It guides you through the appropriate number, rate, and depth of chest compressions, as well as how to perform rescue breaths, as recommended by the American Heart Association.² If the Infant/Child Key is inserted, the instructions adapt to CPR instructions that are appropriate for an infant or child.¹
