    Philips is providing a software update to correct the issue. End users are advised while awaiting the software upgrade for the affected device users may continue to use the HeartStart XL+ unless the device exhibits a Red X, presents an audio chirp and displays the user message: “Equipment Disabled: Therapy”. This is an indicator that the device self-test has detected the problem and is not ready for use. In the case the problem cannot be resolved by running Op-Check, users should identify a readily available backup defibrillator to use in the event the affected HeartStart XL+ exhibits the communication failure.
