Watch how the FR3 is making lifesaving Faster, Easier, Better

A sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) response is a stress-test for a professional medical response team because time matters. You need your equipment to be rugged, ready to use, and to support you every step of the way.

Faster - helping you start delivery of the right therapy faster by significantly reducing deployment time

Easier - helping make your job easier with the smallest and lightest professional-grade AED among leading global manufacturers

Better - helping support a culture of continuous improvement with data managements solutions


  • Automatically powers on** by opening the FR3 carry case so you can focus on pad placement from the start.
  • Pre-connected peel and place SMART Pads III with no foil pouch to reduce deployment time.
  • Quick Shock reduces CPR interruptions and speeds shock delivery.
  • Use the same SMART Pads III for adults and children for faster pediatric cardiac arrest response.
  • Infant/Child Key automatically decrease the defibrillation therapy and implement the configured infant/child CPR protocols.
  • CPR meter* supports High performance CPR protocols


  • Smallest and lightest (1.6kg) professional-grade AED among leading global manufacturers makes the FR3 easier to carry along with other equipment.
  • Bright, high-resolution color LCD makes the FR3 easier to use in a noisy environment.
  • Daily, weekly, and monthly automated self-tests, including pads integrity, help make it easier to ensure the FR3 will be ready when needed.
  • Protection against dust and jetting water (IP55) gives you confidence the FR3 will withstand your physically demanding work environment.
  • Ready-for-use visual indicator flashes a green ready light making it easier to confirm the FR3 is ready.
  • Bilingual configuration makes it easier to use the FR3 in bilingual work environments.
  • Long-life battery typically delivers 300 shocks or, if configured, 12 hours of monitoring to give you confidence that the FR3 will be ready when needed.
  • CPR Metronome keeps the beat for consistent chest compressions
  • CPR meter* enabled with QCPR technology makes it easier to perform Guidelines compliant CPR.

SMART Pads III are compatible for use with the HeartStart FR2 and Heartstart MRx - making it easier standardize on one pad set for your program. Extensively upgradable to take advantage of Philips advancements now and in the future.


  • Review, annotate, print, and store AED events with HeartStart Event Review for timely retrospective responder feedback for more effective training.
  • Provide more in-depth assessment of every aspect of responder intervention and patient response to evaluate individual and system-wide response performance with HeartStart Event Review Pro.
  • Automatically route events from your responder’s computers based on your desired workflow, whether it is to your medical director or data administrator, with HeartStart Data Messenger.
  • Append a defibrillator event to any electronic patient care reporting (ePCR) enabled with the Philips Data Software Development Kit.

Patient data flows according to your desired workflow using your existing infrastructure


* CPRmeter is an optional feature for the FR3
