- FR3 Infant / Child Key
The FR3 Infant / Child Key transforms your Heartstart FR3 defibrillator into a device suitable to use on a child or infant between the years of 1 and 8. This ensures your device is rescue ready no matter what age your patient is.
Once inserted to your device, the FR3 child key will automatically alter the size of the shock delivered, making it a safe size for a child. In addition to this, the visual and vocal prompts will adjust to provide you with effective instructions to assist you through the rescue process.
- Reduces joule size automatically to 50 making it suitable for a child
With an Infant/Child key to hand, you are able to use your device on any casualty regardless of age, without the need of paediatric pads. This can save vital time in a situation where every second is crucial for a successful rescue; inserting the key instantly allows the device to work in paediatric mode so should a child suffer a cardiac arrest in the environment, you have the ability to administer the definitive treatment to save a life.
Whilst the same electrodes can be used on both adult and child, the pads are still single-use only and so it is always beneficial to have a spare set to hand to ensure you can always carry out a rescue.
In addition to this, defibshop Ireland offer a unique free reminder service where owners can register their electrode details and will be notified by email when the expiration date is approaching. This allows users ample time to get re-equipped with the vital accessories your AED needs.

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.
