When To Replace the Philips HeartStart FRx/HS1 AE Batteries And Other Useful Tips

Leicester, UK - Taking proper care and maintenance of expensive medical devices is the only way to guarantee that they last longer than expected. The Philips HeartStart FRx/HS1 defibrillator is an important device used for medical emergencies. In most cases, they are left unused for a prolonged period, which can mean they go unchecked and unmaintained.

If you are guilty about checking on the status of the defibrillator’s m5070a battery, it’s time to become more proactive. Here are a few valuable tips to help you along the way:

Use The Maintenance Tag And Booklet

The best way to remember that it is time to replace the 7.4v Lithium Ion Battery pack is to keep the maintenance tag and booklet updated. Adhere the booklet on the plastic storage sleeve in the AED wall mount so you can see it and remember when the last maintenance day was.

Check For Damage After Each Use

In cases where the device has been used, always check for signs of damage, contamination, and dirt before storing it again. If it is damaged, it is best to contact technical support for assistance. However, if it is dirty, it should be cleaned accordingly.

Proper Cleaning Practices

One option for cleaning the outside of the machine is to a damp soapy soft cloth, if it is possible have a bottle of soapy water ready inside the carry case. Other cleaning materials that can be used include highly diluted chlorine bleach or 70% isopropyl alcohol.

Battery Tips For Medical Devices

Aside from the basic care and maintenance tips mentioned above, manufacturers like Euroenergy also advise clients to pay close attention to the m5070a and other batteries included with medical devices. Here are a few tips on correct battery care and replacement:

Replace Batteries Regularly

It can be a hassle to regularly replace the 7.4v lithium ion battery pack on the defibrillator, but it is a must. You don’t want to suddenly run out of power in the middle of an emergency. Setting a schedule is the best way to ensure the batteries are replaced on time. Once a year or once every other year is more than enough in many cases.

Budget For Battery Replacement

Small clinics and offices can suddenly find themselves needing a battery replacement but do not have the budget to do so. Avoid adding battery replacement and other medical device maintenance expenses to the yearly budget.
