Preparation 5 Semi-Automated External Defibrillation Preparation Confirm that the patient is: • unresponsive • not breathing • pulseless Then: Remove clothing from the patient’s chest. Wipe moisture from the patient’s chest and, if necessary, clip or shave excessive chest hair. Make sure the multifunction electrode pads packaging is intact and within the expiration date shown.
Do not use anterior-posterior pads placement (multifunction electrode pads placed on the patient’s WARNING chest and back). The AED algorithm used by the HeartStart MRx has not been validated using this placement. Do not let the multifunction electrode pads touch each other or other monitoring electrodes, lead WARNING wires, dressings, transdermal patches, etc.
Step 1 - Turn the Therapy Knob to AED When the HeartStart MRx is turned on in AED Mode, it checks to see if the pads cable and multifunction electrode pads are properly connected. If the: • pads cable is not properly attached, you are prompted to "Connect Pads Cable".
WARNING diagnosis. Under these circumstances, if the HeartStart MRx issues a "Shock Advised" prompt, keep the patient as still as possible for at least 10 seconds so the HeartStart MRx can reconfirm the rhythm analysis before you deliver a shock.
CHARGING STAND CLEAR When the HeartStart MRx is fully charged, you can disarm it any time by turning the Therapy Knob N O TE to the “Off” position or by pressing the [Pause for CPR] soft key. Resume monitoring the patient by turning the Therapy Knob back to AED.
Defibrillation therapy is the definitive method for termination of a variety of potentially fatal arrhythmias. The HeartStart MRx provides this therapy through the application of a brief biphasic pulse of electricity to the cardiac muscle. This electrical energy is transferred through attached paddles or disposable multifunction electrode pads applied to the patient’s bare chest.
Asystole should not be routinely shocked. Synchronized Cardioversion Therapy The HeartStart MRx provides synchronized cardioversion therapy by delivering a brief biphasic pulse of electricity to the cardiac muscle immediately following an R-wave detected in the ECG measurement.
Code View 6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Code View In Manual Defib Mode, an energy is selected and the Code View is displayed. Code View is optimized to clearly communicate data associated with a resuscitation event.

Clinicians must select an appropriate energy level for defibrillation of pediatric patients. The HeartStart MRx has a built-in limitation of 50 Joules when using internal paddles. WARNING Do not leave patients unattended when the HeartStart MRx is in manual defibrillation mode with pads WARNING applied to the patient.
6 Manual Defibrillation and Cardioversion Defibrillating (asynchronously) harge Charge - Press the Charge button on the front panel. If using external paddles, the charge button on the paddles may be used instead. As the defibrillator charges, the energy selection shown in the Shock Status area changes to show the current charge energy.
HeartStart MRx. This connects the ECG signal from the monitor into the HeartStart MRx, where it is displayed and synchronization occurs. The signal from the bedside monitor is displayed as Lead II on the HeartStart MRx, even though it is not necessarily Lead II coming from the bedside monitor.
Should an ECG or pads INOP (such as Leads Off) occur while performing synchronized N O TE cardioversion, the HeartStart MRx will not charge, or if charged, will disarm automatically. Defibrillation current can cause operator or bystander injury. Do not touch the patient or equipment WARNING connected to the patient during defibrillation.
Repeat Steps 4-6 under “Delivering a Synchronized Shock”. The Sync function of the HeartStart MRx can be configured to either be enabled or disabled after each shock is delivered. If configured to remain enabled and the Therapy Knob is moved to either Monitor or Pacer, the Sync function is still enabled.
Noninvasive Pacing This chapter explains the noninvasive transcutaneous pacing option available with the HeartStart MRx and describes how to perform pacing. Overview Noninvasive transcutaneous pacing therapy is used to deliver pace pulses to the heart. Pace pulses are delivered through multifunction electrode pads that are applied to the patient’s bare chest.
(such as internal, transvenous or epicardial pacing), therefore, these alarms are off when the HeartStart MRx is in Pacer Mode. All other red and yellow alarms are active if enabled, and their limits may be changed while in Pacer Mode. Refer to the specific chapter for each measurement for information on red and yellow alarms and changing alarm limits.
Pacing View 7 Noninvasive Pacing Pacing View Pacing View appears when the Therapy Knob is set to the Pacer position. Figure 51 shows information displayed in Pacing View. Figure 51 10 Feb 2006 11:20 Mark Event Jones, Samuel 02:02:42 A dult T emp P ulse mm H g q 120...
ECG noise makes R-wave detection unreliable or when monitoring electrodes are not available. The HeartStart MRx requires a 3-, 5-, or 10-lead ECG cable and monitoring electrodes as the source of the ECG during demand pacing. Pace pulses are delivered through the multifunction electrode pads.
Preparing for Pacing To prepare for pacing: If not pre-connected, connect the pads cable to the HeartStart MRx by aligning the white pointer on the pads cable with the white arrow on the green Therapy port. Then push until you hear it click into place.
Demand Mode Pacing If pacing in demand mode, apply monitoring electrodes (see “Electrode Placement” on page 51), and connect the ECG cable to the HeartStart MRx (see “Connecting the ECG Cable” on page 35). If pacing for long periods of time, new monitoring electrodes and multifunction electrode pads should N O TE be applied periodically.
You may also stop delivery of pace pulses by moving the Therapy Knob off the Pacer position. When Pacing in demand mode, the ECG cable must be directly connected from the patient to the WARNING HeartStart MRx. If you are using the pacing function with battery power and the Low Battery Alarm is annunciated, WARNING connect the device to external power or insert a fully charged battery.
7 Noninvasive Pacing Fixed Mode Pacing If you want to see the ECG waveform and related parameters while pacing, you must have electrodes N O TE on the patient with pads. Using pads only will give you an incorrect heart rate and inappropriate alarms.
CAUTION Pacing must be turned off before defibrillating with a second defibrillator. Failure to do so could damage the HeartStart MRx. Troubleshooting If your HeartStart MRx does not operate as expected during pacing, see Chapter 20, “Troubleshooting” on page 249.
