Proven patient therapy
Philips HeartStart defibrillators use sophisticated, clinically-proven technology to provide effective defibrillation, synchronized cardioversion and pacing.
Peer-reviewed evidence supports the effectiveness of SMART Biphasic synchronized cardioversion capabilities, which are activated with the push of a button.* In Sync Mode, R-wave markers appear on or above each detected R-wave.
Defibrillation and Synchronized Cardioversion with SMART Biphasic Technology Designed for maximum efficacy and minimized post- event heart dysfunction, this patented waveform technology measures chest impedance and delivers a shock based on unique patient requirements.
Noninvasive Pacing Users can perform transcutaneous pacing, which offers a constant 0-msec pulse width, and an adjustable rate and output (mA). MRx offers both demand mode and fixed mode.
