Battery and electrodes
An AED device operates based on a battery. The battery allows the AED device to perform regular self-tests and provides sufficient power to deliver shocks during resuscitation. In addition, an AED requires electrodes to deliver a shock. In most AED models, the electrodes are already attached to the AED, so they only need to be unpacked and applied during use. Both batteries and electrodes have a minimum shelf life of two to five years. It is crucial for the proper functioning of the AED that both the battery and electrodes are replaced before their respective expiration dates. Moreover, a battery should be replaced when indicated by the AED device, and electrodes must be replaced immediately if the packaging is opened prematurely. Electrodes are airtight, and once opened, they will lose their adhesive properties, rendering them unusable during an emergency.
To ensure the proper functioning of the AED, regular maintenance is essential. During maintenance, the key functions of the defibrillator are checked, and software updates are performed as needed. Additionally, accessory replacements can be carried out during maintenance. AED Solutions is one of the leading companies in the Netherlands specializing in maintenance.
