Philips FR2 Training Electrode Pads
Philips FR2 Training Electrode Pads
Product Code 07-10900USA
- 1 set of FR2 Training electrodes
Reusable and suitable to use on any CPR training manikin, these pads provide trainers with a cost-effective method of ensuring anyone who may have to use an AED in an emergency is fully prepared and confident enough to deliver the definitive treatment.
Unlike their clinical counterpart, these training electrode pads can be repeatedly used in training sessions to demonstrate the defibrillation process to learners.
After the pads have been successfully attached to the manikin, the training AED unit will move on to the next step of the life-saving process, providing learners with first-hand experience as to how that specific AED will react during a real cardiac emergency.
With the help of training electrodes, learners will be able to understand where electrode pads should be placed on a patient, helping to save valuable time if they had to execute this step of the rescue in real life. Having thorough confidence in what needs to be done during an emergency will help to save valuable time between the victim collapsing and the treatment being delivered.

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.
