Purchasing defibrillators for schools, sports clubs and businesses can be a challenge. What are semi-automatic and fully-automatic defibrillators and which of these are suitable for non-professional staff? When should a defibrillator be applied? What training is required and how do we look after the defibrillators’ maintenance?
To help with these questions we have created a thorough but easy-to-read guide ‘Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) – a guide to their purpose, design and maintenance’.
Some of our customers have also been concerned about their legal obligations once they have installed a defibrillator. Could an AED cause harm to a person being resuscitated? Could there be litigation if a defibrillator should be used incorrectly?
Again, we have tried to answer these questions in a helpful and accessible manner in our guide ‘The use of automated external defibrillators: some health and safety / legal considerations’.
This guide will help you put your concerns in perspective and offers some easy steps with regards to minimising risks.
