INTENDED USE
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 is designed to prepare emergency responders to use the Heartstart FR2 AED. This Trainer
provides a variety of simulations, or training scripts, to help responders become familiar with the AED and allow them to
demonstrate the basic skills necessary to use the AED in an emergency.
NOTE: Before using the FR2 AED, the responder should have completed an appropriate responder training program, which may
include the use of the Laerdal AED Trainer 2. Having completed such a course, the responder should demonstrate a proficiency in
assessing the patient for lack of responsiveness, absence of breathing, and lack of circulation; cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR);
and knowledge of applicable medical protocols and procedures.
FEATURES
-
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 provides simulated shock delivery. It has no high-voltage capabilities, ensuring safety during training. Important: Remember handling safety when using working defibrillators that give a high-voltage shock.
-
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 is designed for use with the AED Little Anne and AED Resusci Anne manikins with
Laerdal Link Technology by giving responses to pad placement on the manikins. It can also be used with any other
manikin. Important: Realistic responses to pad placement feature is only available when used together with the AED Little
Anne or AED Resusci Anne manikins with Laerdal Link Technology.
-
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 can be used with an optional infrared remote control. The remote control gives the
instructor the ability to control the training scenarios.
-
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 is pre-configured with 10 training scenarios that simulate realistic sudden cardiac arrest
episodes. See page 6 for scenario descriptions. These scenarios are compatible with training programs developed
by nationally and internationally recognized responder programs. Check with your local medical director and
Emergency Medical System for additional training requirements, protocols, and materials. In addition, three custom
scenarios can be created using the optional Scenario Builder PC software. (See accessories on page 5).
-
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 can be connected to the serial port of a PC (generally labeled "COM1"). The optional
PC software lets you configure custom training scenarios, set-up various protocol parameters and change language
output. Connection to a PC serial port requires a standard 1:1 9-pin D-sub serial cable.

Pads Connector Socket. Insert the training pads
connector into the pads connector socket. The LED
flashes to indicate the socket location. The LED is covered
when the defibrillation pad connector is properly inserted
in the socket.
Speaker. Provides audible instructions and information
about the unit and the patient's status. The speaker
volume can be controlled by the two blue Up / Down
buttons or the remote control. The last setting will be
stored and maintained even if the unit has been
turned off.

Shock Button. Controls simulated shock delivery. The button flashes when the unit is ready to deliver a
simulated shock.
E
Up/Down Buttons. Control the voice prompt volume during use. Important: These "option" buttons
have different functions on the real automatic external defibrillators. Please refer to the FR2 AED User's Guide.
F
Operator Display and Remote Control Receiver. Indicates voice prompt volume, training scenario
selection, and responses to remote control inputs. (See the diagram and button description of the remote
control for examples of these indicators).
G
Status Window. This window simulates the FR2 status display. By pulling on the tab you can switch
between the hour glass symbol and the X. For details of these symbols refer to your FR2 User's Guide.
H
Battery. The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 battery resembles that of the FR2 AED. Insertion and removal mechanisms
are similar. However, the Laerdal AED Trainer 2 battery case holds six (6) replaceable C-cell alkaline batteries.
I
Training Pads. Training pads resemble those used with the FR2, however
they do not deliver a shock. Training pads with a yellow connector are for
use with any manikin; those with a white connector and "Laerdal Link
Technology" logo are for use with AED Little Anne and AED Resusci Anne
manikins with Laerdal Link Technology. NOTE: The Laerdal AED Trainer 2
comes with one set of training pads with a yellow connector. When the
yellow connector is inserted into the trainer's connector socket, the trainer
responds as if the pads are attached to a patient and proceeds through the
treatment protocol. The training pads are for training use only and will not
function with an actual FR2 AED.
J
Remote Control (optional) The optional remote control can be used to control the different features of
the Laerdal AED Trainer 2 during training sessions (see accessories on page 5). Refer to the diagram below
with individual button functions described. Most remote control actions generate a red digital character
response in the operator display window on the Laerdal AED Trainer 2 device as shown in the table below.

Pause / Resume scenario and AED-Trainer activity.
Pause ( ) will freeze all activity in the trainer. Pause is
indicted by flashing symbol shown. Resume ( )
resumes the activity from the point at which it was
paused.
Simulate motion artifact. Analysis will be interrupted
and a voice prompt asking to stop all motion will be
issued.
Simulate loose electrodes connection
Simulate good electrodes connection. This
function will also override the detection of
physical pad placement.
Simulate a shockable rhythm. This function will override the running scenario.
Simulate a non-shockable rhythm. This function will
override the running scenario.
Light electrode pad position LEDs on manikin chest.
Simulate low battery. Press once for Low Battery. Press
again for Replace battery.
Simulate error condition. Unit will stop operation and
give "chirping" sound every 10 seconds. "Er" is continuously displayed in the operator display. This state represents a red X in the status display on the FR2.
Adjust speaker volume.

Remote Control
(optional)
When battery power falls below a certain point, a voice message, "Battery Low," is provided when the Laerdal AED
Trainer 2 is turned on. When this message is heard, replace the batteries as follows:
1.
Remove the battery case. Lift the battery case handle up until the two locking tabs release their hold, then
remove the battery case from the Laerdal AED Trainer 2.
2.
Replace the alkaline batteries. Lift the lid off of the battery tray by pressing inwards against the locking tab
at the end of the case until it releases (see illustration).
3.
Remove the old batteries and install new
LR14 (C-cell) alkaline batteries. Be sure to
follow the battery-placement icons etched
into the inside of the battery case.
4.
Reposition the lid, and reinsert the battery
tray into the Laerdal AED Trainer 2.

Use with Laerdal Training Manikins
The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 can be used with the AED Little Anne and AED Resusci Anne training manikins with Laerdal Link
Technology. This technology allows realistic response to electrode placement on the manikin surface; they also have an LED in
the chest skin indicating the center of correct pad placement. The Laerdal AED Trainer 2 is pre-configured allowing the LED
to light up automatically when pads are attached. If an electrode is loose or incorrectly placed on the manikin, the Laerdal AED
Trainer 2 will repeat the voice prompt to apply the electrode pads.
Note: For use with the AED Little Anne and AED Resusci Anne manikins with Laerdal Link Technology, electrode training pads with
the "Laerdal Link Technology" logo and white connector must be used.

Battery Replacement
To install the battery case into the Laerdal AED Trainer 2, slide the battery case into the trainer's battery receptacle, with
the battery case's label pointed upwards. The battery case locks into place when inserted properly, and the Laerdal AED
Trainer 2 automatically turns on and enters "set-up" mode.
SELECTING TRAINING SCENARIOS
You can select a training scenario by using either the optional remote control or via the Trainer's set-up mode. To activate
the setup mode, make sure the electrode pads are not connected, then remove and reinsert the battery. Alternatively, press
and hold down the two blue Up/Down buttons while simultaneously pressing the green On/Off button. When the Trainer
is in set-up mode, the operator display shows the currently selected scenario. To change the scenario selection, use the
Up/Down buttons to select the desired scenario, then press the On/Off button to exit the setup mode. The last scenario
selection is stored in the unit even if the battery is taken out.
