- FR3 Infant / Child Key
For exclusive use with the HeartStart FR3 AED range, the FR3 Infant/ Child Key will allow you to use your AED on a child or infant from ages of 1 – 8 years old that requires defibrillation.
If your AED is being placed in a location which is often populated by children, then this is an essential addition to your device to ensure your AED can be used in the event of a child falling victim to cardiac arrest.
After inserting the key into the AED, the FR3 will automatically lower the Joule output of the AED to a safer level for the heart of an infant or child.
- Designed for exclusive use with the Philips FR3 AED
- Lowers the Joule output to a safer level for a child’s heart
- Allows your AED to be used safely and effectively in all rescues, regardless of the patient’s age
How to use
Equipping your FR3 AED with an Infant/ Child Key will help ensure your FR3 AED is ready for use on both adult and children patients.
Unlike other AEDs on the market, there is no need for a change of electrode pads as they can be safely used on both adults and children once the Key is inserted. The Key will automatically lower the joule output to a level safer for that of a child, helping to save vital time in the event of a cardiac arrest.

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.
