Caring for your Defibrillator
Frequently asked questions when purchasing a Defibrillator:
Do the Pads and Batteries need replacing?
Yes, even if they have not been used. Typically they have a shelf life of 2-5 years but each model is different so please check the manual.
Are the Pads reusable?
No, they must be replaced when they have been used.
How do I know if the defibrillator has a problem?
Defibrillators with self checks do this daily, weekly or monthly. They will let you know if there is a problem for example a low battery. They also do a self check before they are used.
However the user must keep an eye out for expiry dates on pads and batteries.
Does my Defibrillator have a shelf life?
Defibrillators have a warranty of 8 years, following this any parts that need changing are not covered under the warranty.
Whilst your defibrillator doesn't need cleaning it is good to ensure that it is dust free.
