What's Included?

  • FR3 Software Upgrade Kit

 (one data card can be used to upgrade any number of units) 

Ensuring your life-saving AED has the most recent software will help ensure you are delivering treatment within the most recent guidelines. The FR3 Software upgrade kit will do exactly that. 

If your FR3 system was manufactured prior to 02/2014, this upgrade kit will allow you to upgrade the software to version 2.1 providing more capabilities for your system, including 3-Lead ECG, QCPR and the rechargeable battery.

One card is capable of upgrading multiple FR3 systems, so one will ensure all of your life-saving AEDs contain the most up-to-date software and guidelines.

About the Manufacturer

Unlike other manufacturers who always have a history in the medical field, Philips Laerdal’s history is quite different as they started as a small publishing house that specialized in greetings cards and children’s books. From there they developed realistic plastic dolls which eventually led them to first aid manikins.

Philip’s healthcare program makes up 42% of their global revenue sales and includes some of the most innovative AEDs on the market, catering for both trained and untrained responders.

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.
