The HeartStart FR3 is Philips best professional-grade AED with advanced features for the professional responder.  Simply put, the Philips HeartStart FR3 AED makes lifesaving faster, easier, and better.

Built for speed - Reduces deployment time

  • The HeartStart FR3 automatically powers on when you open the carry case so you can focus on pad placement. Pre-connected peel and place SMART Pads III, with no foil pouch to open, reduce deployment time.

Small and lightweight - Easy to carry along with other equipment

  • As the smallest and lightest professional-grade AED available among leading global manufacturers, the HeartStart FR3 weighs only 3.5lbs. It is designed to be rugged, reliable, and ready to use.

SMART CPR - Patient specific treatment advice

  • Receive patient-specific guidance with Philips SMART CPR for the most appropriate initial therapy – CPR or defibrillation – even for shockable rhythms.

Bright display - High resolution LCD screen for clarity

  • In severely degraded environmental conditions, voice prompts may not provide enough guidance. The bright, color LCD display of the HeartStart FR3 clearly shows text or text with ECG

Infant/Child key - Simplify the rescue of a child

  • Insert the Infant/Child Key to automatically decrease the defibrillation therapy and implement the configured infant/child CPR protocols.

Data management - Download and forward event data

  • Having event data readily available can help facilitate retrospective review by medical directors and program managers. Philips portfolio of data management solutions supports a culture of continuous improvement and excellence.

Quick Shock Feature - Minimize chest compression interruptions

  • CPR is even more vital to survival than previously realized. Rapidly delivering a shock after chest compressions is critical. The HeartStart FR3’s Quick Shock feature reduces the time between hands-off and shock delivery.  



  • Models

Bluetooth 2.0 Class II Wireless Transceiver Module (optional)

  • Function: Transmit retrospective event data or configuration setting wirelessly

Patient analysis system

  • ECG analysis: Evaluates impedance of defibrillator pads for proper contact with patient skin, evaluates the ECG rhythm and signal quality to determine if a shock is appropriate; also detects artifact and pacemaker
  • SMART CPR: Evaluates key characteristics of the presenting VF and determines the initial therapy: shock first, or CPR first quickly followed by a shock
  • Sensitivity/specificity: Meets AAMI DF80 requirements and AHA recommendations for adult defibrillation
  • Quick Shock: Typically arms in <8 seconds from the end of the "Stop CPR" prompt
