It is often necessary and beneficial for a user to be able to retrieve data from an AED that was used during a rescue. Emergency Room Physicians can find such useful information as the patient's ECG during the event, the number of shocks administered, and when CPR started, among other things. The only way to retrieve this data is through the use of a Philips HeartStart FR2 AED Data Card and Tray.
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 Philips Data Card and Tray will hold up to 8 hours of incident and ECG information, or one hour with voice recording if configured. You retrieve thedatathrough software that's free from Philips anda Data Card Reader available separately. To use data from the Philips Data Card, it must be inserted into the FR2 AED before the device is turned on. The Data Card will automatically record incident data the next time you turn on your Philips HeartStart FR2 AED.
