Philips FR2 Adult Defibrillation Pads (1 Pair)
Philips FR2 Adult Defibrillation Pads (1 Pair)
Product Code 989803158211USA
- 1 set of FR2 Adult electrode pads
For use with your Philips FR2 AED, keep these Adult AED Pads with your device to ensure you’re always able to deliver an effective rescue, even if your original set of pads become compromised.
As all electrode pads are single-use only, it is imperative that they are kept safe and protected from dust and water which could damage the pads. Should the pads become damaged before use, or go past their expiration date – they will not be able to be used to deliver defibrillation to a victim of cardiac arrest; this is why we advise keeping a spare set of pads alongside your AED, just in case.
- Protective packet ensures the AED electrodes are kept clean and undamaged prior to use
- Sticky adhesive means that once the pads are placed on the patient, they will not move during treatment
- Clear images on the reverse provide instructions on effective pad placement
- Compatible with the Philips FR2 defibrillator
- Can provide ECG monitoring, external pacing and synchronized cardioversion
How to use
Firstly, remove the pads from their protective packaging, then apply to the patient’s bare chest using the visual guide provided on the pads.
Once attached to the patient, the AED will automatically begin to analyze the patient’s heart through the electrodes as it searches for a shockable rhythm.
The AED will then relay information on whether treatment is required, prompting CPR to be administered if needed.
The defibrillator will only advise treatment if the patient is suffering from one of two heart-related conditions, VT (ventricular tachycardia) or VF (ventricular fibrillation). If either of these conditions is not found to be present the defibrillator will not provide an electric shock to the patient.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
