The Philips HeartStart FR2+ AED with ECG display option has extra accessories available for it that make it more than just an emergency use device. This is just one of them! Your FR2+ AED can be used by medical professionals for general patient monitoring where a full manual monitor and defibrillator might be impractical. To monitor the ECG of patients, use this Philips FR2+ ECG Assessment Module (part number M3873A). It provides a nondiagnostic ECG display of the patient's heart rhythm for attended patient monitoring. It is intended for use on a conscious or breathing patient regardless of their age. It monitors patients through the use of a 3-lead cable (marked in the standard black, red and white) and displays the ECG in Lead II as well as the patient's heart rate.
This is Important! The Philips HeartStart FR2+ ECG Assessment Module can only be used with the Philips HeartStart FR2+ AED (model number M3860A) or the Laerdal HeartStart FR2+ AED (model number M3840). FR2+ models without an ECG display (models M3861A or M3841A) are not compatible with the ECG Assessment Module. Any Philips FR2+ AED shipped prior to 11/12/01 will require a software upgrade to use the ECG Assessment Module. If you're looking to buy a Philips HeartStart FR2+ AED there's no need to worry...the AED Superstore only sells the latest models compatible with this accessory!
The Module is reusable and latex-free. It consists of a device connector that plugs into the connector socket of the FR2+, a trunk cable terminating in a molded yoke, and three lead wires permanently attached to the yoke. Each lead wire connects to a standard snap style disposable electrode. Three disposable electrodes are included.
