Defibrillator electrode pads and power pack batteries have a fixed stand-by operational lifespan. It is crucial that these components are replaced within this expiration date to ensure that the life saving defibrillator remains fully operational and ready to use in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest emergency. As long as the battery and electrode pads are replaced according to the manufacturer's instruction, the defibrillator should continue to operate correctly. Should there be a fault with the device, the defibrillator will notify you either via an audible or visual prompt.
Using our free reminder service, we can notify you by SMS or email when it is time to replace the set of pads and battery for your defibrillator unit. The frequency of the reminders can be set according to the requirements of the make and model of your defibrillator.
The service is entirely free and can be cancelled at any time.
