Philips FRx Infant / Child key used in infant/child defibrillation with the HeartStart FRx Defibrillator: Item # 989803139311
The unique Infant/Child Key is used only with the FRx Defibrillator when treating an infant or child who is under 55 lbs or 8 years old. Once the Infant/Child Key is inserted, the FRx automatically reduces the defibrillation energy and provides voice and visual instructions and CPR coaching specifically geared for treatment of infants/children. Graphics on the key show proper pad placement for infants and children.
CPR COACHING -- In its default configuration, the FRx AED provides basic verbal instructions for performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, including hand placement, rescue breathing, compression depth and timing, provided by the FRx when the flashing blue i-button is pressed during the first 30 seconds of a patient care pause. If the Infant/Child Key Item # 989803139311 is inserted in the FRx, the CPR Coaching provided will be for infant/child CPR.
The FRx AED does not require special pediatric pads for treating children under 55 pounds (25 kg) or less than 8 years old. If you may need to defibrillate an infant or a child in this age/weight range, it is recommended that you order the Infant/Child Key accessory, available separately. When the Infant/Child Key is inserted in the FRx, the FRx automatically reduces the defibrillation energy to 50 joules and, if optional CPR Coaching is selected, provides coaching appropriate for infants and children.
