- Philips temperature control carry case
The temperature control carry case by Philips will safely store your HeartStart FR2 series AED in the trunk of a vehicle in any weather conditions. This makes it suitable for police cars, EMS and many others who wish to carry a life-saving AED.
This carry case by Philips is designed to carry the HeartStart FR2 series AEDs and will ensure that your device is safely stored in extreme temperatures. The temperature control feature means that your AED can be stored in a car trunk, therefore is suitable for police vehicles, EMS cars and any other vehicles wishing to carry one of these models. The carry case protects your AED from temperatures as low as -20 degrees F and as high as 140 degrees F.
Protecting your AED is essential to guarantee that your device is ready-to-use in an SCA emergency. For every minute that passes without defibrillation, a victim's chance of survival decreases by 10%, so having quick access to one of these devices is vital.

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.
