The HeartStart FRx defibrillator provides real-time guidance through simple, step-by-step voice commands, an audible metronome and CPR guidance to help guide the treatment of a suspected sudden cardiac arrest. With easy set-up, clear voice prompts, and rugged design, HeartStart FRx is designed for users trained in Basic Life Support (BLS).
Truncated Exponential Biphasic. Waveform parameters adjusted as a function of each patient’s impedance.
Adult defibrillation peak current: 32A (150J nominal) into a 50 ohm load. Pediatric defibrillation (with optional Infant/Child Key installed): 19A (50J nominal) into a 50 ohm load.
Standby life (after insertion): Typically 4 years when stored and maintained according to directions provided in Owner’s Manual.
Device Protocol follows preconfigured settings. Defibrillation and CPR protocol can be customized using HeartStart Configure software.
Able to deliver a shock after the end of a CPR interval, typically in eight seconds.
2.4 x 7.1 x 8.9 inches (6 x 18 x 22 cm) H x D x W
With battery and pads case: 3.5 lbs (1.5 kg)
Without battery or pads case: 2.6 lbs (1.2 kg)
