  • Causa
    The possibility of abnormal device behaviours has been identified in the heartstart mrx monitor/defibrillator. the device may exhibit the following issues:1. if the battery connecting pins (in the battery compartment of the heartstart mrx monitor/defibrillator) become damaged or contaminated, it could result in a poor electrical connection that may cause the mrx to either (i) not power on or (ii) repetitively reboot, when used on battery power only 2. after unplugging the device from ac mains, there are two abnormal behaviours of the heartstart mrx monitor/defibrillator that may occur:a) after the user depresses the charge button, the device attempts to charge, and after approximately 20 seconds, generates the “shock equipment malfunction” error message and is unable to deliver shock therapy.B) pacing may cease without warning. these device behaviours continue until the unit is reset.Either problem could potentially delay monitoring or therapy.
