Changing Pads & Battery: LIFEPAK 1000 Defibrillator

This is Blaire with Coro Medical, home of AED.US and today we’re going to go over how to change the pads and battery in the LIFEPAK 1000 Defibrillator.

To prepare for an emergency you want to keep the electrodes connected to the unit at all times. The adult pads have a two-year expiration.  The expiration date is located on the outside of the package. You’re going to change the pads at the time of expiration or if you use the AED. To install or replace the pads, you remove the older pads by pulling on the cable connector, you take the new pads and you plug them in like so.  

The battery has a five-year warranty. The expiration date and the install by date are both listed on the outside of the battery. To install or replace the battery, you remove the old battery, turn the unit on its side and then you lift the latch, release it and the battery slides out. Then you take your new battery, you push that in until you hear it click. Once you change the pads and batteries, verify the ready indicator says okay, and the AED is rescue ready.  

If you have any questions or if you want to go over purchasing options please feel free to give us a call at 800-695-1209 or go to our website Thanks for watching!
