- 1 set of FR2 Adult Defibrillation Pads
These pads are replacement electrodes designed for use with the Philips HeartStart FR2 AED, and ensure your device is ready to deliver a defibrillation shock to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
As all electrode pads are all single use, we advise that you always keep a spare pair with your device, so that you’re never caught without in the event of an emergency.
- Super sticky gel adhesive
- Sealed packaging to keep electrodes fresh and secure
- Clear instructions on pad placement for accurate positioning
Your defibrillator will assist you in the vital rescue steps and will instruct you on when and how to place your pads on the casualty. You can refer to the helpful visual diagram on the packaging of the electrodes to assist you in correctly positioning the electrodes for an effective reading and delivery of shock.
These FR2 pads are unique in their ability to provide ECG monitoring, external pacing and synchronised for the user, a beneficial feature for those more professionally trained and would like to get the most out of their device to provide an effective rescue.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
