    The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator automatically tests its battery, connected SMART Pads II, and internal circuitry every day. It alerts you if it finds a problem. See the Technical Reference Guide, available online at, for a detailed discussion of the self-tests.
  • Page 55 If the FRx does not turn on when you press the On/Off button, remove the battery and replace it with a new battery if available and press the On/Off button to turn on the defibrillator. If no spare battery is available, remove the installed battery for five seconds, then reinsert it and run a battery insertion self-test.
  • Page 56 Shock has been advised but the shock not pressed button has not been pressed within 30 seconds. HEARTSTART FRx 861304 OWNER’S MANUAL recommended action • Stop CPR; do not touch the patient. Minimize patient motion. If the patient is being transported, stop the vehicle.
  • Page 57 If it fails again, do not use the defibrillator. If it passes, store the defibrillator within the recommended temperature range. • Contact Philips for service if needed. • Remove the battery for five seconds then reinstall it to start the battery insertion self-test.

    Group 1 CISPR 11 Class B HEARTSTART FRx 861304 OWNER’S MANUAL electromagnetic environment – guidance The FRx uses RF energy only for its internal function. Therefore, its RF emissions are very low and are not likely to cause any interference in nearby electronic equipment.
  • Page 59 Generally, AEDs are sometimes susceptible to interference generated by patient and/or responder motion in environments in which a high static electric field is present (e.g., low humidity, synthetic carpets, etc.). As a safety measure, Philips AEDs incorporate a patented method to sense possible corruption of the ECG signal by such interference and to respond by directing the user to stop all motion.
