In hospital and EMS environments, where the useful life of a defibrillator's disposable battery can be consumed in a relatively short period of time, the FR2+ Rechargeable Battery (M3848A) provides a cost-effective option for frequent-use applications, such as back-to-back sudden cardiac arrest responses and monitoring patients during transport.
FR2+ battery is fully charged (using the Charger M3849A) in just 3 hours to provide 100 shocks (typical) or 5 hours (typical) of ECG display time. The "fuel gauge" on the FR2+ displays the battery's remaining power. Under normal conditions, the FR2+ Rechargeable Battery withstands 300 charge-discharge cycles or 2.5 years of use. The device complies with the requirements of the Medical Device Directive, 93/42/EEC, and carries the CE-marking accordingly. This product is compatible with FR2 defibrillators sold after 12/1/01 only. To use with an earlier FR2, your FR2 must be upgraded. Not all older FR2s are eligible. Please contact Philips Customer Service at (800) 263-3342 to determine eligibility.
