Types of different AEDs
Every 36 seconds someone in America suffers cardiac arrest. The AHA notes that at least 20,000 lives could be saved annually by prompt use of AED's. Ultimately, with broad deployment of AED's among trained responders, as many as 50,000 deaths due to sudden cardiac arrest could be prevented each year.
Philips HeartStart FRX AED
The Philips FRx Defibrillator is a newer member of the HeartStart family of defibrillators designed with new technological advancements to help in treating the most common cause of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. It is designed to be easy to use, rugged and reliable for those who get there first. On the scene with law enforcement, on the field with student athletes or on the job with employees, the FRx Defibrillator is the solution for treating Sudden Cardiac Arrest from ventricular fibrillation in environments and conditions too demanding for many other defibrillators. Building on the successes of the other members of the HeartStart family of defibrillators, the FRx brings innovations to the treatment of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Reconnected SMART Pads II means one set of pads works for all patients. Save valuable time in an emergency with reconnected pads for use on adults and children. SMART Pads II eliminate the expense of having to purchase different pads sets for different patient types. Wireless Data Transfer is a first in defibrillation technology. The FRx provides a mobile, wireless solution for data management using the Palm OS platform. It features an infrared data port for easy transmission of information without cables or hardwire compatibility issues. Infant/Child Key signals to the device that it is treating an infant or a child. Simply insert the key, and the defibrillator adjusts to provide special pads placement and CPR instructions. The pads icons also flash to show you the appropriate pads placement and the device reduces the shock energy to a level more appropriate for an infant or a child, considered less than 55 pounds or 8 years of age. CPR Coaching is available only on HeartStart Defibrillators. CPR Coaching reminds the responder of CPR basics and provides options for both adults and children.
