AED Plus Guidelines Upgrade Upgrade your AED Plus to make it fully compliant with AHA or ERC 2015 Guidelines AED Plus® Software version 6.24 or higher fully complies with the 2015 American Heart Association (AHA) and European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines. Real CPR Help® will now guide chest compressions to a depth of at least 2 inches (AHA) or between 5 and 6 centimeters deep (ERC). If your AED Plus is running v6.24 or higher, you don't need to do anything. Any AED Plus, no matter how old, can be upgraded to v6.24. For information about how to order complete upgrade services, contact your ZOLL Sales Representative or your Authorized ZOLL Distributor. How to determine the software version AED Plus units manufactured after April 2011 are fully compliant with the 2015 AHA and ERC Guidelines. You can determine the manufacturing date of your AED Plus by referring to the two numbers and letter following the “X” in the serial number. The two numbers following the X indicate the year of manufacture, and the letter following the year indicates month of manufacture. For example, serial number X12B123456 would have been manufactured in February of 2012. What it takes You need to have ZOLL® Administrative Software (ZAS) v6.24 installed on your PC, and you will need an infrared port (IrDA device) to communicate with your AED Plus. With ZAS and an IrDA port, you can easily upgrade the software in any AED Plus to v6.24. For the ERC 2015 Guidelines that’s all you need to do—upgrade the software. For the AHA 2015 Guidelines, after upgrading your AED Plus software, you may want to apply two peel-off-stick-on labels to the faceplate of your AED Plus to cover up the two icons that are no longer used in the AHA protocol. Note: Applying these labels is optional. Your AED Plus will perform perfectly without these labels. If you apply the labels, the face of your AHA 2015 Guidelines-compliant AED Plus will look like this: To get started: Download v6.24 Upgrade Software (will required a valid serial number from the AED Plus), purchase stick-on labels, and/or an IrDA infrared port. After upgrading your AED Plus: You must register your upgrade with ZOLL to preserve your warranty and make certain you receive notification of any Device Corrective Actions that may occur in the future.
