Does anyone have recommendations for securing a Philips Heartstart MRx to a stretcher while going from unit to ambulance? Is the best way still the hook on the back of the headrest? Looking for thoughts.

At times I place the monitor besides the patient's legs on the stretcher and secure it with the bottom strap. This all depends on patient size and what other equipment they require (vent, multiple pumps etc)
You can try in between legs or to the side of the legs

FL, it's getting harder to find patients "average-sized" to rig the monitor between their legs anymore :-0
