Automated Tests

The HeartStart XL+ performs many maintenance activities including three tests that run automatically at
regularly scheduled intervals when power is supplied and the device is off. The tests assess operational
performance and alert you if a problem exists.
Results of tests associated with critical device functionality are reported through the RFU indicator and
the Automated Test Summary Report. Results are also reported through statements on the
HeartStart XL+'s display when the device is turned on.
