In general, treat the FRx as you would any piece of electronic equipment, such
as a computer. Be sure to store the FRx according to its specifications. See
Appendix E for details. As long as a battery and a pads set are installed, the
green Ready light should be blinking to show that the FRx has passed its most
recent self-test and is therefore ready to use.
NOTE: Always store the FRx with a set of SMART Pads and a battery
installed, so it will be ready to use and can perform daily self-tests. Training
pads should be stored separately from the FRx to avoid confusion during a
use.

RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES

It is always a good idea to have a spare battery and a spare pads set. Other
things that are useful to keep with the FRx include:
scissors — for cutting the victim's clothes if needed
disposable gloves — to protect the user
a disposable razor — to shave the chest if hair prevents good pads
contact
a pocket mask or face shield — to protect the user
a towel or absorbent wipes — 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.
When the Infant/Child Key is inserted in the FRx, the FRx
automatically reduces the defibrillation energy to 50 joules and, if optional CPR
Coaching is selected, provides coaching appropriate for infants and children.
Directions for using the Infant/Child Key are provided in Chapter 3, "Using the
HeartStart FRx."
See Appendix A for a list of accessories and training products for the FRx
available from Philips.
