  • Notas adicionales en la data
    Philips recommends the following measures: • Operate the XL with AC power instead of battery power only. • If you need to operate the XL with battery power only, make sure the battery is of a different Manufacturing Date (it should not have code R-2011-12 for the Date of Manufacture). • If you can not operate with AC power only or find a battery with a date of manufacture other than the one identified above, use an alternative energy source for treatment or therapy (eg, defibrillator / standby monitor).

  • Causa
    If the xl defibrillator / monitor (m4735a) is used in a patient when ac power is not in use, with a battery that may fail, the device may shut down unexpectedly without providing the user with a warning message or low battery tone. there is potential for harm to the patient if the xl shuts off or becomes inoperable when in clinical use to provide therapy (ie defibrillation or non-invasive cardiac pacing) note: the xl is capable of running on ac power without a battery.
