An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable, lightweight, highly sophisticated medical device that can analyze the human heart’s rhythm and deliver an electric shock to restore a normal heartbeat. These devices enable basic life support (BLS) personnel to respond to medical emergencies involving sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions unexpectedly, leading to death when not treated immediately.
HRD Aero Systems is proud to partner with Philips and offer the HeartStart FRx defibrillator as part of our comprehensive line of aircraft safety equipment. The HeartStart FRx stands out from similar designs by using advanced technology that guides you through treating a victim for suspected SCA, including an audible metronome, step-by-step voice commands and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) instruction.
