periodic audio chirp

Solid red "X" with

The HeartStart XL+ is powered by a Lithium Ion battery or AC power. The battery should always be
installed so the device is ready for use whether or not AC power is available at the point of care. When
pacing, AC power should be connected if possible to prevent the battery from eventually becoming
depleted and interrupting the pacing operation.
Keep your battery charged at all times. For more information on your battery see
page 27, and
NOTES: If AC power is used as the only power source during defibrillation (for instance when no battery is
installed or when the battery is fully discharged), the HeartStart XL+ may take longer to charge to the
desired energy level, and, in the event of power loss, all settings reset to configured settings and a new
event is created when power is returned. However, all saved data remains intact (up to the device's
memory capacity) and can be found by retrieving the previous event. Keep your battery installed and
To ensure proper grounding reliability, the HeartStart XL+ must be plugged into a hospital-grade outlet.
To remove AC power, disconnect the power cord from the outlet.
If you question the AC power cord's functionality, disconnect it from the device and operate on battery
power. Replace the cord before reconnecting to AC power.
