Philips FR2/FR2+ Data Card and Tray
The Philips FR2 and FR2+ have the ability to allow EMS and ER Physicians access to important patient ECG Data during an entire event, the number of shocks required and administered, when CPR was commenced as long as the Data Card was inserted in the FR2 before the device was turned on. The Philips HeartStart FR2+ AED does show a patient summary on its LCD screen after an event, but it doesn't include the features above that are so helpful to the patient and doctor. The only way to retrieve this data is through the Philips HeartStart FR2+ AED Data Card and Tray.
The FR2+ can also be configured to record audio during a sudden cardiac arrest event. Additionally, the Data Card will automatically record incident data the next time you turn on your Philips HeartStart FR2+ AED.
The data card holds approximately 8 hours of incident and ECG information, or one hour with voice recording. One card can hold data from multiple cases. A flash data card reader enables data transfer from the card to a personal computer for use with HeartStart Event Review data management software.
Data Card Installation Procedure
- Make certain the Data Card and Tray is clean and dry, especially on the side of the card where the AED's pins connect.
- Insert the Data Card into its yellow plastic Tray with the Tray's rubber tongue fitting over the similar yellow area on the card. Make sure the card's label is facing up with the arrow facing the right direction.
- Make certain the Philips FR2+ AED is either off, or that the battery has been removed.
- Use the handle to hold the Tray containing the card and gently insert it into the Data Card port on the right side of the FR2+. Never force the Data Card into the slot. If the Tray seems hard to insert, remove it, make sure everything is positioned correctly as described above, and try again.
