What's Included?

  • LP500 SLA Battery

This non-rechargeable battery pack is for use with the LIFEPAK 500 AED unit and will ensure your device is sufficiently charged and able to deliver defibrillation to a victim of cardiac arrest.

Your LIFEPAK 500 AED can be powered either by the lithium sulphur dioxide (LiSO2) or this sealed lead-acid (SLA) battery pack; it is important to keep a fully charged battery with your AED to ensure your unit is able to power sufficient defibrillation to a victim of cardiac arrest.

Core Component

In the event of a cardiac arrest, CPR along with shock therapy from an AED is the only definitive treatment against SCA and a patient’s only hope for survival. This is why keeping a spare battery alongside your AED is best practice to ensure your unit is always in a state of readiness and is ready to be used should an emergency occur.

What is an IP rating?

An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.

Why is this important?

The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.

When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.

To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.

Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.

Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
