Expiration Dating
Batteries

Philips AED batteries have a 4-year life expectancy from the date of installation. Prior to installation, they have a 5-year shelf life from the date of manufacture printed on the battery. A best practice is to use a sharpie to write the installation date on the battery so you can estimate its life expectancy while functioning in green light blinking ready mode. As long as the green light is blinking, the battery is good to go.

Pads

All defibrillator pads have expiration dates that are determined by manufacturer testing data that is reviewed and cleared by the FDA. The industry standard for pads life expectancy was two years when Philips FDA clearance was granted. Philips pads expiration dating is in compliance with the FDA labeling requirements. Regarding pads maintenance/replacement, please note that Philips FDA cleared IFU (Section 5.1, pg. 47) states…"replace any used, damaged or expired supplies and accessories"... Please note: as long as the ready light is blinking green, the pads integrity has not been compromised and they will deliver the shocks needed for a save.
