Philips announces deadline for G2005 AED updates
In late November 2005 the American Heart Association announced changes to the “rules” of CPR. The new way to perform CPR became known as “Guidelines 2005.” The new guidelines should have prompted all AED owners to upgrade their machines to conform to the new guidelines.
Since the new ruling went into affect 2 years ago, Philips, makers of the OnSite, FRx, FR3, and other AED models, has announced a deadline for upgrade availability for their Heartstart line of automated external defibrillators. Owners of these devices have until December 31, 2007 to place their upgrade order with Philips Medical Systems.
