Aed Care – The Must do Maintenance Tips

AEDs are common medical emergency equipment used by medical professionals involved in the immediate care and relief of cardiac arrest sufferers. When the rhythm of hearing is erratic and beats in irregular fashion, the heart may stop and there may be a cardiac arrest. It results in blood flow disturbance and reduces oxygen supply to vital organs and body cells. Prolonged decrease or loss of blood supply can result in brain damage and other hazardous conditions which can lead to body dysfunction or death.Link aed

While purchasing AEDs for use by a corporation or individuals, much needs to be taken care of including choosing the right type of AED brand, training the right people to use the product, price and availability, ease of use, and other factors that will decide its successful use.

Not everyone can properly use the AED but there are many agencies that can help train people using automated external defibrillators or AEDs such as the Red Cross. Education and the right features dictate decision-making when buying this type of equipment that makes waves as part of the medical response teams gear-thanks to medical theme films and TV shows.

It’s easy to keep an AED in good condition, too. Keeping it clean is the first Cardinal rule. Although maintenance procedures that vary from brand to brand, a defibrillator follows the same maintenance rule-being safe as it is. To be safe, one must follow the processes of maintenance as defined by the product manufacturer. When you buy AEDs, there’s always a status indicator on the device and you need to make sure the AED is ready for use.

With AED systems, a three-month safety check may be necessary to ensure that it remains safe to use and that it will still work as well as it was previously purchased. We must take into account the cleanliness and cracks. The pads shall not be used past their dates of expiration, as they may not be as effective as before. The electrodes must still be properly attached, without any bits and pieces hanging from their “skin.” The batteries must not be used after the expiration date and the other emergency equipment such as gloves and masks should be kept in the “box.” Care should be taken of the status indicator. Have the product looked at by the manufacturers or the supplier who supplied the system when it is not working.
