The M5070A At Workby Tony Myers on 06/12/14
The old saying big things come in small packages definitely relates to the M5070A HeartStart battery. Almost everywhere you look when you’re at a sporting event or just shopping in the mall if you keep your eyes open you will probably see a sign that says Automated external defibrillator or AED. In today’s world where people are living longer and obesity is on the rise these lifesaving devices powered by a simple self-contained m5070a battery will become more and more part of our daily lives in public places.
There are many different types of aeds and AED Batteries on the market but you should always use the manufacturers recommended accessories such as batteries and pads. There are several Philips HeartStart defibrillator models on the market and some have been in service for 20 years plus like the heartstart Fr2. The Philips Heartstart Fr2 uses the M3863A disposable lithium manganese dioxide battery, which has a shelf life of five years, plus typical standby life of five years (four years minimum). The workhorse of the Philips HeartStart defibrillators is the Frx which has been used by first responders, Schools, businesses, and military because of its ease of use and durability. The Frx has been on the market for years and has a been picking up more and more market share every year. The newest defibrillator put out on the market by any manufacturer and the only one available to customers without a physician’s prescription is the Philips home defibrillator and the Philips OnSite, this rugged easy to use and affordable AED makes life saving as easy as turning it on and following its voice prompts. Like the FRx model the OnSite and Home defibrillator are powered by the M5070A HeartStart Battery.The M5070A battery is a disposable, lithium manganese dioxide, long-life battery capable of delivering 300 shocks unlike other generic batteries 200 and the HeartStart M5070A battery also has a 4 yr warranty compared to the generic brands 1 year.
Just like your car battery, if your AED battery is not in a charged functioning state your defibrillator is useless that’s why you must periodically inspect it by simply making sure the green light is blinking.
The Philips HeartStart M5070A is not just a battery it could mean the difference between life and death.
