Reason/Issue Philips is sending formal notice of a Medical Device Labeling Correction to ensure the following:

-HeartStart MRx customers have access to the HeartStart MRx Addendum as a supplement to the MRx Instructions for Use (IFU)
-HeartStart FR3 customers whose Q-CPR Meters are used on an MRx are aware that certain information contained in the FR3 AED Instructions for Administrators (IFA) and the FR3 Q-CPR Meter Instructions for Use (IFU) also applies to use of the Q-CP Meters with the MRx.
Recall Action Product Defect Correction
Recall Action Instructions In August 2015, Philips distributed a Q-CPR Addendum to the MRx Instructions for Use (IFU). This information was already available in the HeartStart FR3 Instructions for Administrators (IFA) and the FR3 Q-CPR Meter Instructions for Use (IFU) - this was undertaken under RC-2015-RN-00832-1.
Philips is requesting MRx users ensure that their copy of the MRx IFU contains the Addendum.
For FR3 customers, ensure that the IFU for any MRx with which your Q-CPR Meter may be used contains the Addendum
