FRx TRAINER 861306
FRx Trainer performance during use
The Philips HeartStart FRx Trainer is designed for use in an automated
external defibrillator training class taught by a qualified instructor.
When a training scenario is running, the FRx Trainer mimics the behavior
of the FRx Defibrillator during actual emergency use. It provides voice
instructions, guides the user through one or more simulated shocks,
provides pauses for CPR, offers CPR Coaching, etc. If there is no user
interaction (no buttons are pressed) for ten minutes, the Trainer turns off.
IMPORTANT: Certain features of the actual HeartStart FRx
Defibrillator are not reproduced by the FRx Trainer.
• The FRx Trainer cannot be used with the (clinical) SMART Pads II. If
the SMART Pads II are installed, the FRx Trainer will repeatedly ask
you to install training pads.
• The FRx Trainer does not perform the battery insertion and periodic
• Inserting or removing the Infant/Child Key from the Trainer during a
scenario restarts the scenario.
• The FRx Trainer always uses a standard NSA pause.
To change the FRx Trainer's default configuration
The HeartStart FRx Trainer comes with a factory default configuration
designed to meet the needs of most users. The settings for certain
parameters, listed in the table below, can be altered by the user.
To change configurable Trainer parameters, remove the battery
compartment door from the Trainer and locate the switches in the bottom
of the battery compartment. Using a small implement, adjust the ON and
OFF switch settings as described in the following table.
