  • Causa
    Defibrillation electrodes may increase electrical impedance over time. if impedance becomes too high, the aed will fail the electrode self-test and it will not be rescue ready, the aed status indicator will be red and the aed will beep. this is normal behavior when the impedance limit is exceeded. the high impedance electrodes require replacement.
