June Product Round up: AEDs
EMS1 is focusing on news and information about AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) throughout the month of June 2010. Check out some of these great products currently on the site:
Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator
For demanding situations where other AEDs just won't do, the Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is designed to be easy to use, rugged and reliable. Infant/child key turns the HeartStart FRx into a pediatric defibrillator, tailoring the voice instructions and therapy to the needs of a child. That means just one pad set works for adults, children, and infants, simplifying a stressful rescue. Every HeartStart FRx goes through a 120 point test before it leaves the factory. On the job, the HeartStart FRx automatically conducts self-tests every single day, not just weekly. It performs over 85 different tests in all. Learn more by visiting www.medical.philps.com.
