A range of medical consumables to suit clinician preference
HeartStart Defibrillator Pads and Paddles Optimized for Philips defibrillators, HeartStart multifunction defibrillator pads come in adult, pediatric, and specialty choices to fit the needs of a variety of departments, caregivers, patients and treatments – from emergency use to ECG monitoring and radiological procedures. When connected to HeartStart MRx, they can provide ECG monitoring, synchronized cardioversion, and noninvasive pacing, in addition to external defibrillation. If paddles are preferred, the MRx is optionally equipped with a set of external paddles. These anterior/anterior paddles (water resistant available) quickly and easily convert from adult to pediatric by removing the outer surfaces. The paddles also have Philips’ patented Patient Contact Indicator (PCI) to assess paddle-to-patient contact and indicate contact quality on the sternum paddle’s handle.
For open-heart and other intrathoracic procedures, HeartStart MRx can be used with Philips internal defibrillation paddles, which come in a range of sizes.
Carrying case A durable, semi-rigid structure covered in easy-to-clean vinyl, the case adds a layer of protection to the HeartStart MRx and enables easy transport of well-organized accessories. Modular pouches can be removed if desired.
Measurement Supplies ECG cables, NBP cuffs, SpO sensors, and CO filter lines are interchangeable with HeartStart MRx and other Philips patient monitors. This contributes to efficiency during transfer since there’s no need for re-cabling. It also simplifies purchasing, stocking, and managing inventory for cables and other supplies throughout the hospital. All supplies are backed by a one-year warranty.
