- FRx carry case
Designed for use with the Philips FRx AED range, this carry case will effectively protect and store your AED when on-the-go.
The bright red design and the universal ‘AED’ symbol on the case will help bystanders to easily identify the contents of the carry case, helping to reduce the time between AED retrieval and treatment should a cardiac arrest occur in the area.
The additional carry handle and shoulder strap allow the AED to be transported with ease, so you can safely deliver the unit to the scene of a rescue.
How to Use
Simply insert your Heartstart FRx AED into its new carry case and you’re all set! The case is designed to provide effective protection for the AED against dust and water. This will help ensure the equipment is kept in optimum working order.
The case comes with an extra compartment which allows you to store electrode pads and a rescue kit. Storing the AED and the required accessories together will help to shorten the time between the victim collapsing to the treatment being administered as all the required essentials are together and ready to be used.
There is a window in the case so the status indicator is still visible. This will help you to keep on top of your AED maintenance and whether the device is faulty, low on battery or simply requires attention all without having to remove the device from the case.

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.
