1: Introduction
The device automatically stores critical event data such as Event Summaries and Vital Signs
In clinical mode, the Efficia DFM100 continually records data about a patient in an Event Summary
record. The recorded data includes vital signs (such as SpO
therapy events (such as shock delivered). The Event Summary can be printed or exported after the
patient event is completed.
You can also transfer the data to a USB drive and download it to a compatible version of Philips' data
management solution – HeartStart Event Review Pro.
The Efficia DFM100 is powered by a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. Available battery power is
determined by viewing the battery power indicators located on the front of the device, the icon on
the display, or by checking the gauge on the battery itself. Additionally, AC Power may be applied as
a secondary power source and for continual battery charging.
The Ready For Use (RFU) indicator provides a constant status update, indicating the Efficia
DFM100 is ready for use, needs attention or is unable to deliver therapy. The device performs
automated tests on a regular basis and displays results on the RFU indicator. In addition, performing
specified Operational Checks ensures the Efficia DFM100 is functioning properly.
The Efficia DFM100 is highly configurable to better meet the needs of diverse users, including the
EMS (Emergency Medical Services) environment. Be sure to familiarize yourself with your device's
configuration before using the Efficia DFM100. See
