The Lifeline Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a maintenance free defibrillator as it performs self tests on a daily basis. The results of these self tests will be visible by the status indicator light in the top right hand corner of the unit. This light should be flashing green, but if for any reason the light starts flashing red and bleeping then please perform the following steps until a resolution has been reached:
1. Check the pads are plugged into the top of the unit. If they are not plugged in, please plug in the connector and turn the unit on and off. The light should now be flashing green.
2. If the pads are plugged into the unit, then please turn the unit on and off again. Once the unit has been turned off it will announce what the problem is, which could be one of the following:
3. If measures 1 and 2 don’t solve the problem, then please perform a manual self test, which you can find instructions on page 27 of your defibrillator manual. If you have misplaced your manual please perform the test as follows:
N.B. Only perform a manual self test as a last resort, as each self test drains the battery (one shocks worth of battery power) and each battery has a 125 (or 5 years) or 300 (or 7 years) shock capacity.
