What's Included?

  • 2 sets of FR2 Adult electrode pads

For use with the Philips FR2 AED, these Adult Defibrillation Pads are needed for your AED to deliver a life-saving shock.

Exclusively for use with the Philips FR2 AED, this bundle pack of 2 sets of electrode pads ensures your device will be ready to be used in an emergency situation.

Having a spare set of electrode pads to hand saves precious time so that even if the primary set becomes damaged, dirty or unusable, you have a reserve pair to use straight away in a rescue.

Key features

  • Secure plastic casing ensures the electrode pads are well protected prior to use
  • Clear images help the first responder to place the pads correctly on the patient
  • Pre-connected, ensuring the pads are ready to be used in a rescue from the moment they are connected to the defibrillator
  • Can provide ECG monitoring, external pacing and synchronized cardioversion

How to use

The electrode pads are an integral part of the lifesaving process after someone has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.

After they have been removed from the packaging and applied to the patient, they begin to analyze the heart rhythm and feed the information back to the AED to determine whether shock therapy is the right treatment for the patient.

If the AED has detected either VT (ventricular tachycardia) or VF (ventricular fibrillation), then the unit will advise treatment and either provide the shock itself (automatic defibrillators) or instruct the first responder to administer the treatment (semi-automatic defibrillators).

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.
