Warning!  ▲Use the AED Plus® unit only as described in this manual. Improper use of the device can cause death or injury. ▲DO NOT use or place the AED Plus unit in service until you have read the AED Plus Operator’s and Administrator’s Guides. ▲DO NOT use or place the AED Plus unit in service if the unit’s status indicator window (located on the left side of the handle) displays a red “X.” ▲DO NOT use or place the AED Plus unit in service if the unit emits a beeping tone. ▲Connect the electrode cable to the AED Plus unit after installing the battery assembly. ▲Keep the electrode cable connected to the AED Plus unit at all times. ▲This device is intended for use by personnel who have been trained in its operation. Users should receive training in basic life support/AED, advanced life support or a physician-authorized emergency medical response training program. ▲Only use electrodes labeled “Infant/Child” on children less than 8 years old or weighing less than 55 lbs (25 kg). Use CPR-D-padz® if patient is older than 8 years or weighs more than 55 lbs (25 kg). ▲Always stand clear of patient when delivering treatment. Defibrillation energy delivered to the patient may be conducted through the patient’s body and cause a lethal shock to those touching the patient. ▲DO NOT touch the electrode surfaces, the patient, or any conductive material touching the patient during ECG analysis or defibrillation. ▲Move patient away from electrically conductive surfaces prior to use of equipment. ▲DO NOT use the unit near or within puddles of water. ▲Keep the patient as motionless as possible during ECG analysis. ▲DO NOT use the unit near flammable agents, such as gasoline, oxygen-rich atmospheres, or flammable anesthetics. ▲Avoid radio frequency interference from high-power sources that might cause the defibrillator to interpret cardiac rhythms incorrectly by turning off cell phones and 2-way radios. ▲Disconnect non-defibrillation protected electronic devices or equipment from patient before defibrillation. ▲Dry victim’s chest, if wet, before attaching electrodes. ▲Apply freshly opened and undamaged electrodes, within the electrode expiration date, to clean and dry skin to minimize burning. ▲DO NOT place electrodes directly over the patient’s implanted pacemaker. Pacemaker stimuli may degrade the accuracy of ECG rhythm analyses or the pacemaker may be damaged by defibrillator discharges. ▲Check labeling inside the ZOLL® AED Plus cover before using the cover as a Passive Airway Support System (PASS) device to ensure it is intended for this use. ▲DO NOT use the Passive Airway Support System (PASS) if there is a suspected head or neck injury. Place the patient on a firm surface before performing CPR. ▲DO NOT recharge, disassemble, or dispose of battery assembly in fire. Battery assembly may explode if mistreated. ▲DO NOT use or stack the AED Plus unit with other equipment. If the unit is used or stacked with other equipment, verify proper operation prior to use.  Caution!  ▲DO NOT disassemble the unit. A shock hazard exists. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel. ▲Use only the specified ZOLL battery assembly (REF 8000-003000-01). Discard the battery assembly properly after removal from unit. ▲If the device is stored outside the recommended environmental conditions, the electrode pads and/or battery assembly may be damaged or its useful life reduced. ▲The CPR-D-padz Electrode can be connected to other ZOLL defibrillators with Multifunction Cables. Defibrillation can be administered when connected to other ZOLL defibrillators.The CPR function does not operate with any device other than the AED Plus defibrillator. ▲Keep the unit away from magnetic resonance imaging equipment.
