Built on a platform of proven ease-of-use
The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator was designed to be as easy to use as the HeartStart OnSite Defibrillator and shares many of its features, including CPR coaching and intuitive icon-driven operation. Small and lightweight – just 3.5 lbs/1.5 kg – the FRx is equipped to direct you through the resuscitation of a SCA victim.

Reliability backed by Philips
Every HeartStart FRx goes through a 120-point quality test before it leaves the factory. The HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is powered by an easy-to-install, long-life (four-year) battery, so you know the device is charged and ready. The device’s automated daily, weekly, and monthly self-tests check pad readiness, and verify functionality and calibration of circuits and systems. With over 85 test, the FRx is one the most comprehensive self-testing devices on the market and is virtually maintenance-free. The blinking green ready light on the defibrillator is your assurance that the device has passed its latest self test and therefore is ready for use.

Preconnected SMART Pads II
SMART Pads II can be used for both adults and children. They eliminate the expense of having to purchase different sets of pads for different patient types. SMART Pads II enable the FRx to keep pace with responders by adjusting to their actions.

Infant/Child Key
Simply insert the Infant/Child key into the FRx to signal to the device that you’re treating an infant or a child. The defibrillator adjusts to provide special pads placement and CPR instructions. The pads icons also flast to show you the optimized pads placement, and the device reduces the shock energy to a level more appropriate for an infant or child.

The Philips HeartStart FRx Defibrillator is exceptionally rugged. Designed to surpass rigorous testing requirements, the FRx withstands jetting water, loads up to 500 pounds, and a one-meter drop onto concrete.

Clean design and clear voice instructions, including CPR coaching, are designed to help instill the confidence that’s needed when treating a person in cardiac arrest.

Once EMS arrives, hand-off is fast and easy because the FRx is compatible with advanced defibrillators like the HeartStart MRx. With HeartStart adapters, our pads can be plugged into devices from other manufactures to ensure continuity of care.

Wireless Data Transfer
Infrared data port for easy transmission to a Smartphone or PC running Event Review software, without cables or hardwire compatibility issues.

Turns on with easy-to-use pull handle

Every HeartStart OnSite comes ready-to-rescue. The device is pre-installed in the carrying case and battery and pads are pre-installed in the device. Simply pull up the handle on the front of the AED to activate it.

The HeartStart OnSite provides on-demand audio coaching. Calm, clear voice instructions are tailored to the responder’s actions, providing AED and CPR guidance during the resuscitation of a sudden cardiac arrest victim.


Safely delivers maximum shock strength – Philips SMART Biphasic therapy uses a unique combination of high current – to maximize effectiveness, and a lower energy dose – to minimize side effects that are harmful to a fragile heart.

Ready when needed

Your HeartStart OnSite 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.

Replaceable SMART Pads Cartridges

The cartridge contains two adhesive pads that are placed on the patient’s bare skin as indicated by the pictures on the pads. The pad are “smart” because they sense when they have been removed from the cartridge and when each has been applied to the patient, adjusting the voice instructions to your actions. With the patented “Quick Shock” therapy, the Onsite is among the fastest in class at delivering a shock after CPR.

Infant/Child Pads

The HeartStart OnSite can be used on patients of any age, including infants and children. OnSite senses when the special infant/child SMART pads Cartridge is installed. It automatically adjusts to a lower energy level more appropriate for infants and children, and also provides coaching for performing infant/child CPR.

When EMS arrive

Should EMS need a summary of care, it can be retrieved from the defibrillator’s internal memory. An EMS provider simply presses the i-button and HeartStart OnSite verbally recounts events from its last clinical use.
