3: Working with the HeartStart XL+

Controls

Operating controls are organized by function with the defibrillation controls to the right of the display,
soft keys under the display, general function buttons under the soft keys and to the left and right of the
display.

Therapy Knob and Controls

The HeartStart XL+ Therapy knob is customized for the options included in your device. If you have the
Pacing Option, a Pacer knob position is included. The knob enables AED Mode, Pacing Mode, Monitor
Mode or selects an energy for Manual Defibrillation Mode defibrillation or cardioversion.
Regardless of the options, the knob and controls function the same:
Turning the HeartStart XL+ on – Grasp the Therapy knob and turn to the right for Monitor Mode,
Manual Defibrillation or Pacing; turn to the left for AED Mode.
Charge button – Charges the defibrillator to the selected Manual Defibrillation energy setting. It is used
only in Manual Defibrillation Mode. The defibrillator charges automatically in AED Mode.
Shock button – Delivers a shock through multifunction electrode pads or switchless internal paddles. In
Manual Defibrillation Mode, the shock is delivered at the selected energy. In AED Mode, a 150J shock is
delivered if the patient category is set to Adult, 50J if set to Infant/Child. The button flashes when
charged.
NOTE: When external paddles or switched internal paddles (internal paddles that have Shock buttons, as
opposed to switchless internal paddles where you administer the shock by pressing the Shock button on
the device) are used, the HeartStart XL+ delivers a shock by pressing the Shock button(s) located on the
paddles.
Sync button – Toggles between synchronized energy delivery used during cardioversion and
asynchronous energy delivery used during defibrillation. The Sync button lights blue when Sync is
active.
