Installation of a Philips M3863a Battery for FR2 Defibrillator

Philips M3863a Battery

A disposable Philips M3863A battery pack, made from Lithium Manganese Dioxide, with a 5 year warranty gives a minimum of 300 shocks equivalent to over 12 hours of operating time is a battery that is specifically designed to work with the Philips FR2+ series of defibrillators.

A staple in every household, public place or organization, not to mention hospitals and clinics, the Philips FR2+ automated defibrillators are an important investment to make.

The Philips Fr2+ series of defibrillators work on m3863a battery power only, so it is always a good idea to have an extra battery pack on hand in case the battery runs out at a crucial time. However it’s important to know how to properly install a Philips m3863a replacement battery pack in a situation where you do end up needing to change it.

The Philips FR2 Defibrillator status indicator informs you of the m3863a battery levels. A flashing red sign means that the battery is running out of power. A stable red sign indicates that the battery is unusable and needs to be replaced with an m3863a battery pack.

To install a replacement Philips m3863a battery pack in a Philips FR2 Defibrillator you need to:

* Squeeze the yellow latch on the old Philips FR2 Defibrillator m3863a battery pack to release and remove it from the AED

* Make sure that the Optional ECG Assessment Module and the Electrode Pads have been safely removed from the AED and are no longer connected

* Hold the new Philips m3863a battery pack by the yellow latch and carefully slide it into the battery cavity at the top of the AED

* Push and slide the Philips m3863a battery pack into the cavity until you feel and hear a click to indicate it has been fixed into place.

Once the Philips m3863a replacement battery pack has been inserted correctly into the Philips FR2 AED, the device will automatically turn itself on to indicate proper installation and will allow you to initiate a device self-test to determine proper performance. The appearance of a LCD hourglass on the self-test indicator window on the Philips FR2 defibrillator indicates that the device is ready for use.
