USE ENVIRONMENT
HEARTSTART FRx DEFIBRILLATOR TECHNICAL REFERENCE MANUAL
Operation of the defibrillator in a rainy environment should present no
additional risks to the operator or bystanders, since the conductivity of
rainwater will be less than the pool water.

PROTECTION AGAINST WATER AND PARTICLES

The IP Code
HeartStart defibrillators use an international standard to identify the level of
protection provided by the defibrillator enclosures against solid particles and
water. This standard is called "IEC 529, Degrees of protection provided by
enclosures (IP Code)." This standard identifies the protection with two
numbers. The first number designates the level of protection against solid
particles, and the second designates the level of protection against water.
Higher numbers indicate a higher level of protection. The degrees of
protection are listed in the tables below:
