Battery and electrodes
An AED device works using a battery. Due to the battery, the AED device performs self tests regularly and has enough voltage to provide multiple schocks during a resuscitation. In addition, the AED needs electrodes to be able to provide a shock. The most AED models contain pre-connected electrodes, in order that these only need to be unpacked and splaced before deployment. Batteries and electrodes have a minimal lifespan of 2 up to 5 years. To guarantee the working of the AED, both the electrodes and the battery need to be replaced before the expiration date. Besides, the battery needs to be replaced when the indicator at the AED tells to and the electrodes need to be replaced when the package has been opened in the meantime. The electrodes are packed airtight in fact and will loose their adhesive power making that the pads can't be deployed anymore.
For the proper functioning of the AED, it is important that the AED is provided with the correct maintenance regularly. During the maintenance the most important functions of the defibrillator will be checked and software updates will be done when necessary. In addition, it is possible to let the replacement of the accessories take place during the maintenance. AED Solutions is one of the leading companies regarding maintenance in the Netherlands.
