Tips To Keep Your Defibrillator In Perfect Condition
When we have a defibrillator with the aim of attending to an emergency and being able to save a life, we cannot forget its maintenance. Since we want to be able to treat cardiac arrest, we have to know that proper maintenance can make a difference. Everything needs to work properly.
Therefore, the equipment must be in perfect conditions of use. A cardioprotective space not only implies having the necessary instruments but also contributing to their care and perfect state of use. It depends on us. But how should this maintenance be performed?
The basic check can be carried out by ourselves, although it is highly recommended that the company that has installed it, or another specialized company, supervise this care. Below are some of the routine checks:
- We must carefully monitor the expiration dates of the consumables available
- See that the light and acoustic signals work correctly
- Check that the on/off button works properly
- We will check that the “download” button works well
- Check that the batteries and electrodes are properly installed
- Checking the trainer is essential so that it can be available at all times
Like all sanitary equipment, the lifepak cr plus aed requires proper maintenance. The best thing is to pass those periodic reviews that certify us and guarantee that everything is in perfect condition.
A specialized company will make the necessary records and provide you with a status report. It advises you and tells you when to do the review again. In this way, we will never pass on its maintenance.
They will measure the spectrum of the dust forms for the optimization of the discharges—both for the power to be correct and the way it is done, and will watch that the electrodes are in perfect conditions to be able to make a correct electrocardiogram reading.
