How long do defibrillator batteries last?

 

Each year in Britain around 30,000 people fall victim to sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital environment. In the event of an emergency, defibrillators act as the first responder to the scene.

Nothing lasts forever and with the importance of life-saving devices; you’ll need the right parts to keep them operating smoothly. You can rate the maximum lifetime  of defibrillator batteries by following these categories:

  • Number of shocks
