All About Philips FRx AED

If you’re seeking an Automated External Defibrillator with the ease-of-use that Philips is known for and a design that’s built to last, the FRx is it.  AED One-Stop Shop is a National “Preferred” Distributor and we find that customers enjoy the HeartStart versatility tremendously.

The Philips HeartStart FRx AED was built with rugged design so that it’s ready for real-world use. It was built to surpass rigorous testing requirements: withstanding jetting water, crushing loads of up to 500 pounds, and a one-meter drop onto concrete. The HeartStart FRx features CPR coaching and intuitive icon-driven operation. Calm, clear voice instructions are tailored to the responder’s actions, providing guidance during the resuscitation of an SCA victim. The infant/child key turns the HeartStart FRx into a pediatric defibrillator by adjusting the voice instructions and decreasing defibrillation therapy to treat infants and children. The same pad set works for adults, children, and infants. At just 3.5 pounds, the HeartStart FRx is light and portable, allowing for easy transport. Its size and weight make it perfect for police officers, firefighters, and trained public servants. Your HeartStart FRx goes through a 120-point test before it leaves the factory. On the job, it conducts self-tests every single day, not just weekly. It performs over 80 different tests in all. Even the pads are tested for readiness.

Philips SMART Biphasic therapy uses a unique combination of high current – to increase effectiveness, and a lower energy dose – to decrease side effects that are harmful to a fragile heart. CPR is even more vital to survival than previously realized. Rapidly delivering a shock after chest compressions is critical. The HeartStart FRx’s Quick Shock feature reduces the time between hands-off and shock delivery.

AED One-Stop Shop Will Help You Include Lifesaving AEDs as Part of Your Emergency Management Protocol

AED One-Stop Shop proudly works with a large number of emergency management agencies across the United States. Emergency management consists of planning ahead to reduce an area’s vulnerability to potential hazards and to prepare the community to cope with disasters.

It’s important to note that planning for disaster management doesn’t avert or eliminate hazardous threats. Instead, it focuses on planning to decrease the damage to a community due to a disaster. Failure to create a plan can lead to the loss of human life, damage to valuable assets, and lost revenue.

An estimated 60 percent of American businesses don’t have emergency preparedness plans. AEDs are a non-intrusive and affordable way to start the process of implementing an emergency safety plan for a safer workplace. Equipping these lifesaving devices can help to reduce the alarming estimated number of 1,000 Americans per day perishing from cardiac arrest.

Emergency managers can incorporate the right type and quantity of publically accessible AEDs that are strategically placed to yield response times of less than 3 minutes. Furthermore, ample training is available for employees so they’re skilled and confident while using an AED during a cardiac emergency.

Program management shouldn’t be overlooked as this is a comprehensive system that includes safety protocols, tracking, auditing and direction from a trained physician. AED One-Stop Shop has the answers for emergency managers.

We use a thorough consultative approach where we ensure that all of the important facets of an AED program are safely implemented. After completion of a free detailed needs analysis, we’ll recommend the most appropriate product for your specific safety needs.

We offer consumers a choice of 5 leading brands consisting of over twenty AED models. Wall cabinets, child pads, and services that accompany these lifesaving devices are also available.

We welcome you to contact our courteous and professional staff by phone at 1-855-677-2337 or via e-mail at to discuss AED inclusion into your emergency management protocol.

The Lifesaving Importance of Learning About CPR and AEDs.

If you’ve already purchased or done research about automated external defibrillators (AEDs), then you probably already know they’re easy to use during a cardiac emergency. Voice guided prompts ease the rescuer through the step-by-step process to save a life using the AED.

Though the operation of these medical devices is fairly straightforward, we are often asked why training is required. Our answer is that CPR/AED training and certification will ensure the proper use of an AED during a sudden cardiac emergency while in some states, training and certification are mandatory.

CPR is an emergency procedure that’s performed to preserve brain function until further measures can be made by professional medical personnel to restore the spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.

Using timed chest compressions at a rate of at least 100 per minute, at least, 2-inches deep, artificial circulation can be created by manually pumping blood through the heart which will lead to blood flow to the rest of the body. The responder may exhale into the person’s mouth or nose using a device that pushes air into the lungs.

Today, an emphasis is placed on proper chest compression. A simplified CPR method that uses only chest compressions is recommended for untrained responders. Trusted organizations like The American Heart Association and The Red Cross include the use of an AED in their CPR courses.

Check your local state’s requirements to see if AED training is mandatory with CPR training. We here at AED One-Stop Shop strongly advocate the teaching and learning of lifesaving skills. Employees in the workplace are more at ease and have confidence while using the AED technology and in our experience, they’re far more likely respond to a cardiac emergency.

Don’t Be Intimidated By Automatic External Defibrillators

Since they’ve been invented these small and portable medical devices are now made by leading manufacturers like HeartSine, ZOLL, Philips, and LIFEPAK.

These brands have been continuously striving to improve AED widespread usability so as to not be intimidating during an emergency. Advances in technology have been made for AEDs to be accessible to the average person rather than for strictly professional medical personnel.

Manufacturers understand the seriousness of cardiac arrest which can cause sudden death. While medical professionals will need to be called, these AED devices save lives immediately. You may notice AEDs placed in locations such as these:

*Hotels and resorts

*Restaurants and retailers

*Sporting and convention venues

*Malls and major shopping centers

*Airports and airplanes

*Gyms and health clubs

*Swimming pools and aquatic centers

*Office workplaces

*Industrial workplaces

*Churches and places of worship

Workplace Safety, AEDs and CPR

As 2015 comes to an end and 2106 begins, it’s a great time to look at your workplace and evaluate wellness, health, and safety.  We know the statistics about the incredible cost of not retaining our employees when we look at recruiting, hiring and training of new ones.  It behooves the business owner or general manager to ensure they are doing everything they can to create a wonderful working environment.

As we approach the New Year it is important to evaluate current workplace safety initiatives and the ways to improve in this area.  An often overlooked initiative tackles the workplace’s surprising top killer which is sudden cardiac arrest.  For many years workplaces and business simply relied upon calling 911 and were at the complete mercy of EMS.  These days companies are investing in small, easy-to-use public defibrillators and CPR training and are thus creating “heart safe” environments for the employees, customers and visitors. What is an AED machine? 

The public defibrillators described above are also known as Automated External Defibrillators or AEDs.  Believe it or not an ordinary personal could easily save the life of a cardiac arrest victim by using the simple automated device.  An AED uses voice and visual prompts to guide the rescuer to remove clothing from the chest, place the two electrode pads appropriately and then deliver a life-saving defibrillation shock if necessary.  Public Defibrillators are safe in that they only deliver therapy if a shock is needed and they even guide rescuers through delivery of CPR compressions.  How to use an AED.

AEDs are needed in corporate workplaces, small businesses, schools, churches, gyms, government offices and certainly public places.  AED One-Stop Shop is a leading provider of the remarkable life-saving devices and we provide CPR/AED training too.  For those needing funding there are programs in place.  AED One-Stop Shop does business in all 50 States and we utilize a consultative approach to help select and provide the ideal AED brand, model and accessories.  Call 855-677-AEDs or email with any questions you have or for a quote at a discounted price.

AEDs and the Outdoor Industry

At AED One-Stop Shop we take great pride in helping to educate, raise awareness and our general effort help to combat Sudden Cardiac Arrest death.  We have worked recently with numerous Outdoor Industries to help deploy life-saving devices for the protection of human life.  U.S. Outfitters are placing Automated External Defibrillators at base camps and on the guided raft/boat/canoe tours in pelican type cases.  Zip Line parks are doing the same.  Camping enthusiasts, boating fanatics, hunters, and recreational vehicle owners are also making this investment in safety.

AED One-Stop Shop is an Albuquerque, NM based National AED Provider with a different approach to business.  We work often with industries with a significant need for public defibrillators and partner with associations, attend conferences and propose to establish “heart safe” initiatives.  We’ve helped to secure general liability discounts with insurance companies but we find that many are simply investing AEDs because it’s the right thing to do.  In related categories we’ve assisted golf courses, athletic organizations, and entities who work with active populations.  It’s important to note that Sudden Cardiac Arrest doesn’t always take the lives of supposed likely candidates, it’s often young lives that are abruptly taken with little to no warning.

For those who are considering Automated External Defibrillators we are very often their first call as we carry the leading brands and fit the right AED type to the client’s particular application.  One popular choice for some of these industries is the HeartSine Samaritan PAD devices which are light, compact and portable.  Others seeking remarkable ruggedness might consider the LIFEPAK CR-Plus or the Philips HeartStart FRx AED.  We discuss specific needs and always seem to land on the right brand and model for our customers.  Furthermore we offer wall cabinets, wall brackets or water tight pelican cases to help protect the life-protecting AED.  Call 855-677-2337 or email for more on our dynamic company.

U.S. Cities Investing in AEDs – “Heart Safe Cities”

In my years of being involved with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) one of my greatest pleasures is working with communities to bolster or build City Defibrillation Programs.  Having met with and partnered with hundreds of communities particularly in the Southwest and Central U.S. it is definitely the people that make this such a delight.  Fire Chiefs, EMS Chiefs, City Safety Managers, Emergency Managers, City Managers, Mayors, Police Chiefs, Risk Managers and Department Heads like Parks & Rec, Utilities and more are often some of the most community-focused and passionate individuals around.  Though every community is different each of the mentioned roles within a municipality have an obligation to not only their local citizens but also to City employees to make them safe from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  I take very seriously the task of helping to create what I classify and describe as “Heart Safe Cities.”

What does a great Defibrillation Program look like?  In my experience, it is often one where there’s outstanding communication between the City Departments and the public officials that lead them.  There is often a well embraced safety culture in such Cities where the general thinking of the community leaders is proactive and they are mindful of the big picture.  The initiative to place life-saving AED devices is paired with the initiative to train City employees in CPR & AED so they are armed with life-saving skills and there’s little apprehension over the use of the public defibrillators.  There’s often one individual who can be coined as the champion of the program and that individual is typically well organized as far as AED placement and the status and inventory of consumables like batteries and electrode pads.

Is your City progressive, average or lacking in respect to a Public Access to Defibrillation Program (PAD)?  Do you have AEDs in City Hall, swimming pools, parks and rec centers, public works, libraries, convention centers, and utility vehicles?  Does your police department have AEDs at the station and have them strategically placed in police patrol vehicles?  The trend to equip police officers with these safe and easy-to-use defibrillators is yielding a notable amount of lives saved since many times they arrive on an emergency prior to Fire Departments.  Does your City have a single brand of AEDs or are there numerous AED types at various departments?  Have you partnered with a knowledgeable consultant such as AED One-Stop Shop who can help determine the right AED brand and model for each application and each environment?  Or have you done much of this but find the management of the program time consuming?  You might need a comprehensive Program Management offering which provides medical direction, asset tracking software, and post-event support when your City uses an AED for an event.

Gone are the days that communities should rely solely on calling 911.  Fire Departments are massive supporters and proponents for the investment in AEDs since they know they simply can’t arrive in time all of the time. Perhaps this article speaks to you and your City or County might need some attention placed upon AEDs. If that’s the case, please contact Laurence Saban of AED One-Stop Shop 855-677-2337 for some expert level guidance on how best to proceed.  Your actions today and focus upon safety will very likely lead to lives being saved at some point in the future, perhaps sooner than you might expect.
