What we are going to do now is look at the Mediana HeartOn A16 defibrillator. This is a relatively new defibrillator. All we are going to do is have a look at the basic features of it and how to set it up. To start with, with any new AED you want to make sure you read the instructions. So the unit comes with the instructions and you want to try and keep these instructions near the unit. So if anyone needs them they are there. Now the units themselves, as with all AED units are very simple to use, but this gives the main maintenance instructions of what each of the features does on the unit. So when you get the unit to start with there is two key parts to it, there is the main AED unit itself and the battery.

So the first thing you need to do is remove the security seal on the battery, so you need to take that off, otherwise when you put the battery in it won't make contact with the metal pins at the bottom. Just while we got the battery off, in here also is an SD card slot. It is a micro SD card slot, and that is for taking the data. So it is a very easy way of extracting data off of this unit. There is also an infrared port, but the SD slot is much easier because you can literally push that out and give that to emergency services when come, so it is a very fast way of getting data off of this unit. So it is taking audio as well. So it is recording the sound of what is going on. It will give you a warning about that and also the data of the unit. So to put the battery, just line up the clip, so slide it in one side and then put it in. So it is firmly in, it will just go through to start with a couple of quick startups, a couple of audio noises, and then it will tell you when it is ready to be used.
