A reminder to Defibrillator Owners around the island
With temperatures beginning to drop, please be reminded that in order to keep your units at their optimal performance, they be stored between 0° and 50° C (room temperature is best if possible) . As well as protecting the defibrillator pads, this will also ensure that you get the best life span from your unit’s battery.
Owners with units stored externally in PADs (Public Access Defibrillators) that are connected to the mains electricity supply will normally have heated pads that the units rest on, these heated pads will ‘kick in’ when the temperature drops below 5°C.
Please refer to your owner manuals for further storage and maintenance information.
