- Philips FRx Adult Defibrillation Electrode pads (pack of 2)
The Philips FRx Adult defibrillation pads are designed for use with the Philips HeartStart FRx AED and are kept in a protective plastic casing to ensure that they are rescue-ready at all times.
Having a spare set of electrode AED pads could be a life-saving choice if someone fell victim to a cardiac arrest. These particular pads by Philips are designed for the HeartStart FRx AED.
A protective plating casing around these electrode pads will ensure that they are undamaged and clean prior to use. These pads are therefore more likely to be effective in an SCA emergency.
- Protective plastic casing keeps the electrode pads safe and secure until use
- Clear and bold images on the pads, to ensure that they are placed correctly
- Designed to be pre-connected, so that the pads are ready in an emergency
- A shelf life of 2 years (if unused) before they will need replacing
- Sticky adhesive on the pads means that they will not move once applied on the patient
How to Use
Once the pads have been connected and registered to the AED, the device will check them on a regular basis to ensure that they are in full working order.
If the AED is required for treatment, then the pads should be removed from their casing and applied to the patient, following the instructions on the reverse side of the pads. After the pads have been placed, they will start to analyze the patient's heart rhythm, to decide whether they need to be shocked.The pads will then relay this information back to the AED. If the device does not detect one of the two conditions: VT (Ventricular Tachycardia) or VF (Ventricular Fibrillation), then a shock will not be delivered.

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.
