  • Causa
    The mrx can be susceptible to one or both of the issues described below:-1.) the co2 inlet port associated with end-tidal carbon dioxide (etco2) monitoring on mrx monitor/defibrillators can be pushed into the mrx housing, making it inaccessible. this can occur if the user attempts to push the co2 filterline fitting into the inlet port, instead of twisting it clockwise as described in the mrx instructions for use. a life threatening situation could occur if etco2 is unavailable and the clinician has no other reliable method for determining c02 statusincluding proper intubation without dislodgement.2.) the handle can separate from the mrx housing due to breakage of mounts on the rear case. this is a drop hazard and may potentially cause bodily injury or failure to deliver therapy due to the unit becoming damaged during impact.
