HeartStart MRx Q-CPR Adhesive Pads
This document clarifies the section in your HeartStart MRx Instructions for Use related to attaching the CPR meter
adhesive pad to the CPR meter. It also replaces the HeartStart IFU addendum dealing with Q-CPR adhesive pads (part
number 453564528861). Keep this addendum with your Instructions for Use.
When using the CPR meter (or the earlier generation CPR sensor) for CPR feedback during an event, you must
properly attach an adhesive pad to the back of the device before using.
To attach the adhesive pad:
Open the package of adhesive pads. Peel one pad off the strip, exposing the
adhesive surface on the underside. Apply the pad to the back of the CPR
meter, covering the entire yellow surface. Press into place. See ➊.
Do not peel off the green and yellow liner from the front of the pad until
you are ready to apply the device to a patient.
For more information on the CPR meter or sensor and its adhesive pads, see
the Q-CPR and Data Capture chapter in the HeartStart MRx Instructions for
WARNING: Properly performed CPR can result in the fracturing of a patient's ribs or other chest injuries,
including external chest wall bruising or abrasion.* If patient rib or chest integrity has been
compromised, continue to provide CPR in accordance with your local protocol.
CAUTION: As directed in the instructions, the CPR meter must be used with the adhesive pad in place.
