    Identify any affected devices in your possession, using the Field Safety Notice. You can continue to use your HeartStart MRx without the Q-CPR meter attached. If you use the HeartStart MRx with the Q-CPR meter attached and the Q-CPR meter displays the ‘Do Not Touch the Patient’ icon at an unexpected time, follow the MRx instructions for use and remove the meter from the patient and continue CPR according to local protocol. Philips will contact you to arrange to install the software upgrade.
