What's Included?

The comprehensive checks include:

  • A visual check to ensure that the unit has full functionality and there is no damage to the case, screen, buttons and connections.
  • Battery and pad check for installation date and when replacements are due
  • A check of the pad terminal to make sure it is functioning and clear of debris
  • Confirmation that the pads attached are suitable to the model and in good condition
  • A check to see if the defibrillator will administer a shock correctly - unit is connected to a simulator which produces a simulated heart wave. The defibrillator must administer a shock, at the right energy level, when appropriate (shockable heart rhythm, VF or VT) and not administer a shock when appropriate (no heart rhythm) to pass the test.

 

Our Annual AED Service is available to anyone who owns a defibrillator whether it was purchased from defibshop or not!

Let us take any worry away. One of our own expert team members will come to your premises and carry out some physical and visual checks on your defibrillator.

One comment we hear a lot from clients is that they want to be sure their defibrillator is ready for action should it ever need to be used.

We can assure you it will be! Every defibrillator performs regular self checks and all defibrillators have some form of status indicator showing you that all is well.

However, to ensure absolute peace of mind, defibshop is offering an industry leading new service.

The HSE Regulations for providing and using work equipment safely state:

You must ensure that the work equipment you provide meets the requirements of PUWER.

You should ensure that it is:

■ suitable for use, and for the purpose and conditions in which it is to be used;

■ maintained in a safe condition for use so that people’s health and safety is not at risk; and

■ inspected, in certain circumstances, to ensure that it is and continues to be safe for use. Any inspection should be carried out by a competent person (this could be an employee if they have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to perform the task) and a record kept until the next inspection.

What is an IP rating?

An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.

Why is this important?

The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.

When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.

To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.

Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.

Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
