Introduction
When you reach for your HeartStart XL to care for
your patient, you depend on the battery to provide
the energy necessary to operate the defibrillator/
monitor. To ensure that the battery is ready when
you need it, you should understand how the battery
functions and how to care for it properly. This
application note describes the characteristics of
sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries and explains how to
care for them.
