INTRODUCTION TO THE HEARTSTART FRX DESCRIPTION The Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator 861304 (“FRx”) is an automated external defibrillator (AED). Small, lightweight, rugged, and battery powered, it is designed for simple and reliable operation by minimally trained users. The FRx is highly configurable for local protocol considerations.
(CPR). Several national and local organizations offer combined CPR/AED training. Philips recommends that you train on the device you will be using. Contact your Philips representative for information, or visit us online at www.philips.com/ AEDservices to learn about certified training and web-based refresher training (offered in select areas) available through Philips AED Services.
† In Japan, the defibrillator comes with a different style of booklet and maintenance tag. ‡ If the battery and pads are not installed, follow the directions in Chapter 4, “After Using the HeartStart FRx” to install the pads and battery.
FRx where it is hard to hear the voice instructions. Any of the carry case options has room for storing the Quick Reference Guide. ‡ See Chapter 4, “After Using the HeartStart FRx” for directions on how to replace the battery in the FRx.
Use the maintenance tag provided to record EXPIRATION DATE the expiration date of 12/2010 the installed pads. If you have a spare pads case and spare battery, record the pads expiration date and battery install-by date INSTL. DATE on the maintenance INSTALL EXP.
— to dry the victim's skin for good pads contact Philips has a Fast Response Kit with all these items. See Appendix A for information. If you may need to defibrillate an infant or a child under 55 pounds (25 kg) or 8 years old, it is recommended that you order the Infant/Child Key accessory, available separately.
USING THE HEARTSTART FRX IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure to read the Reminders section at the end of this chapter as well as the warnings and precautions in Appendix D. OVERVIEW If you think someone is in SCA, act quickly and calmly. If someone else is available, ask him or her to call for emergency medical assistance while you get the FRx.
STEP 1: PRESS THE GREEN ON/OFF BUTTON Press the On/Off button turn on the FRx. The FRx tells you to remove all clothes from the person’s chest. If necessary, rip or cut off the clothing to bare the person’s chest. Press green On/Off button.
Where to place pads on infants or Where to place pads on adults and children over 55 pounds children under 55 pounds (25 kg) or (25 kg) or 8 years old (anterior-anterior). 8 years old (anterior-posterior). STEP 3: PRESS THE FLASHING ORANGE SHOCK BUTTON IF INSTRUCTED As soon as the FRx detects that the pads are attached to the patient, the pads icons turn off.
* The default configuration for the FRx provides CPR Coaching when you press the i-button in this situation; however, the default setting can be revised by your Medical Director using Philips software available separately. See Appendix F for more information.
If the victim is under 55 pounds (25 kg) or 8 years old, and you have an Infant/ Child Key: • Insert the Infant/Child Key into the slot at the top center of the front panel of the FRx (see illustration at left). The pink portion of the Key pivots (1) and fits into the slot (2), with the front of the Key lying flat on the surface of the FRx so the infant/child pads placement diagram is visible.
Each pad has a layer of adhesive gel. If the gel is not sticky to the touch, replace the pads with a new set. (For ease of handling, the pad is designed with a non-gel area around the connector cable.) * See Chapter 4, “After Using the HeartStart FRx,” for details about data storage.
• Keep the patient still and keep any movement around the patient to a minimum during rhythm analysis. Do not touch the patient or the pads while the Caution light is on solid or flashing. If the FRx is unable to analyze due to electrical “noise”...
Check the outside of the FRx for signs of damage, dirt, or contamination. If you see signs of damage, contact Philips for technical support. If the defibrillator is dirty or contaminated, clean it according to the guidelines in Chapter 5, “Maintaining the HeartStart FRx.”...
The stored data can be conveniently transferred to a personal computer or a handheld computer running the appropriate application in the Philips HeartStart Event Review data management software suite. Event Review software is for use by trained personnel only. Information about HeartStart Event Review is available online at www.philips.com/eventreview.
The information automatically stored by the FRx includes a summary of last-use data and detailed data about its last clinical use. You can get a voice summary of information about the last use of the defibrillator by holding the i-button down until it beeps once.
• Replace any used, damaged or expired supplies and accessories. • Check the outside of the defibrillator. If you see cracks or other signs of damage, contact Philips for technical support. Record each periodic check in your inspection log/maintenance booklet.
CLEANING THE FRX The outside of the HeartStart FRx can be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened in soapy water, chlorine bleach (2 tablespoons per quart or liter of water), ammonia-based cleaners, or 70% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. It is recommended that the carry case be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened in soapy water.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS The terms listed in this Glossary are defined in the context of the Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator 861304 and its use. Automated external defibrillator (a semi-automatic defibrillator). AED mode The standard treatment mode for the HeartStart FRx Defibrillator. It provides voice instructions guiding the rescuer through applying the adhesive pads, waiting for rhythm analysis, and delivering a shock if needed.
If the HeartStart FRx detects artifact such as that created by CPR, or if the user presses the i-button for CPR Coaching during a SMART NSA pause, the defibrillator will not exit the pause for rhythm analysis in order to allow CPR to be completed uninterrupted.
On/Off button A green button located on the front of the HeartStart FRx Defibrillator. Pressing the On/Off button when the defibrillator is in standby mode turns the defibrillator on; pressing and holding the On/Off button for one second when the defibrillator is on turns the defibrillator off and disarms the defibrillator. In addition, pressing the On/Off button stops the battery insertion self-test that automatically runs when a battery is inserted.
The operating mode of the HeartStart FRx Defibrillator when a battery has been installed, and the unit is turned off and ready for use when needed. Shown by blinking green READY light.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS It is important to understand how to use your HeartStart FRx Defibrillator safely. Please read these warnings and precautions carefully. A warning describes something that could cause serious personal injury or death. A precaution describes something that could cause minor personal injury, damage to the FRx, loss of data stored in the FRx, or less chance of successful defibrillation.
cell phones The FRx can work correctly when it is fairly close to equipment like emergency two-way radios and cell phones. Normally, using a cell phone near the patient should not cause a problem for the FRx. However, it is best to keep such equipment only as close as necessary to the patient and the FRx.

TESTING AND TROUBLESHOOTING TESTING 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 Manuals for HeartStart Automated External Defibrillators, located online at www.philips.com/productdocs, for a detailed discussion of the self-tests.
RECOMMENDED ACTION WHEN YOU NEED TO USE THE DEVICE If the FRx is chirping and the i-button is flashing, it is possible that the defibrillator still has enough battery power to be used to treat a victim of SCA. Press the On/Off button. 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.

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.
