Before you start:
Always consult your medical director's protocol when adjusting the settings on your LIFEPAK 15 monitor/defibrillator. It is also recommended that you have the following documents readily available when you use the Configuration Setup Tool:
- LIFEPAK 15 monitor/defibrillator Setup Options

Think about what you would like to do each time you use the tool. To start, you will be asked to choose from the following options:
- Create a file from your LIFEPAK 15 monitor/defibrillator
- Create a file using factory default settings
- Modify the setup options within an existing file
- Apply the setup options to one ore more LIFEPAK devices
Once you start, just follow the steps in the wizard.
To view all the available setup options in the left-hand pane, click on the "Plus Sign" and "" symbols to expand and contract the list (see figure below).
Site number and device ID:
The Site Number and device ID values in the Setup/General section are unique to the currently connected device. You can use these fields to uniquely identify each device and/or device location, but you are not required to change them. However, the values must be changed or accepted before you can proceed.
The screen below identifies each of these unique fields with red circles. To change a value, highlight the existing text and enter new information. To accept the existing value, click in the text box. The red circles in the left hand pane will change to green; the red circles on the right will disappear.
The red circles will not be displayed when the Site Number and Device ID field values have already been changed or accepted as shown below.
NOTE: Always confirm that your scheduled setup options match your local medical director's protocols.
