The HP 78670A operates from a rechargeable 2.0 ampere-hour nickel-cadmium battery which provides fifty 360 Joule discharges, or more than 2.5 hours of continuous monitoring or 1.5 hours of combined monitoring and recording. A Model 78668A (Quick-Mount Power Base) is provided as a standard accessory and allows AC line power operation ope of the Defibrillator/Monitor while simultaneously charging its battery. During battery operation, a BATTERY LOW indicator flashes when a low battery condition exists.
Mounting the Hewlett Packard 78670A Defibrillator to the top of a cart or vertically on a wall, provides a secure mounting for the instrument as well as a quick release for emergency portable use. An accessory storage compartment provides convenient storage for patient leads, electrodes, and Redux paste. The compact, lightweight package design, along with battery operation, permits its use in portable applications.
