  • Causa
    When heartstart mrx defibrillator monitors are used in external transport and ems environments the mechanical/electrical connection between the pads/paddles therapy cable (including pads cpr therapy cable and external paddles cable) and the mrx therapy connection port may experience higher than expected levels of stress causing accelerated wear. without routine periodic inspections and preventive action by users, wear of the connection could ultimately prevent the device from sensing that the pads/paddles therapy cable is connected. this wear also may cause the mrx to inappropriately identify the pads therapy cable, external paddles, or internal paddles.
