Philips introduces enhanced HeartStart MRx Monitor/Defibrillator


Philips introduces the tactically enhanced HeartStart MRx Monitor/Defibrillator for emergency medical services. The latest innovations are based on extensive feedback from emergency medical services professionals.

The HeartStart MRx combines industry-leading monitoring technology with diagnostic measurements and Philips’ patented defibrillation therapies in a rugged, lightweight device. The HeartStart MRx provides several advanced features important to EMS professionals, including:

  • Tactical grey color option designed to show less dirt and wear over time
  • Automatic lead switching, which allows users to focus on the patient, not the monitor
  • Improved ECG performance, including new ‘ruggedized’ emergency medical services lead sets
  • Flexible event summary print options for enhanced workflow
  • Enhanced event markers, with the ability to enter drug dose and unit of measure
  • Auto switching from demand-mode to fixed-mode pacing if the primary ECG lead is lost
