Battery Test

This checks the battery capacity by charging and discharging the battery. Perform this test once a month.

WARNING
If defibrillation or cardioversion is necessary during the battery test, cancel the battery test and operate the defibrillator on AC power. Do not use battery power because the battery may have been discharged by the battery test.

NOTE
It takes about 4.5 hours to test a fully charged new battery at the 20C ambient temperature. It takes up to 6 hours to test a battery which has little remaining charge. If the power cord is disconnected from the defibrillator during the battery test, the battery test is canceled. Before starting the battery test, firmly connect the power cord to the AC outlet on the wall and the defibrillator. If there is a difference in temperature between the battery and the defibrillator, the battery test cannot be done properly. In such a case (for example, when you test the extra battery), insert the battery in the defibrillator and leave it for 3 hours, then perform the battery test. 1. On the System Setup - Menu screen, select Battery Test with the Item key and press the OK key. The System Setup - Battery Test screen appears. 2. Confirm that the battery is properly installed. 3. Connect the power cord to the AC outlet. 4. Confirm that enough recording paper is loaded in the recording unit. If not, load it. 5. Press the START key to start the battery test. When the battery is not fully charged, it is charged, then discharged. When the battery is fully charged, it is immediately discharged. A message shows the progress of the test. Checking battery: Battery is being charged for the battery test. Battery is being discharged. Battery is being charged for the next use.

Checking the Battery Appearance

To prevent battery trouble, check the battery appearance every 6 months. The check schedule should be written on the battery check label attached to the defibrillator. 1. Check the outside appearance of the battery pack. If there is any damage (crack, deformation, cable discontinuity and so on) on the battery or the battery leaks, replace the battery with a new one. If the battery is dirty with dust, remove it. If the battery check label says it is the day to replace the battery, replace the battery with a new one. 2. After checking, change the battery check label. If the battery is replaced, write down the date of the first use on the new battery.
