AED Management Programs

If your facility owns a defibrillator, did you know most states require a written plan for owners of automated external defibrillators to include schools, churches, industry and public safety organizations.

Documentation, deployment strategies and maintenance record keeping of unit expiration dates are integral parts of these requirements.

Most states, including South Carolina, require written AED plans outlining AED deployment, reporting, and maintenance procedures. As long AED units are maintained according to manufacturer recommendations, most entities that purchase AEDs are protected from legal liability. We offer complete AED Management Programs to ensure compliance, regardless of location.

The Key to Preventing Most AED Failures; Have a Written Maintenance, Inspection and Deployment Plan that includes:

Compliance:

E-Med provides physician oversight, written AED plans to include AED protocol guidelines, AED deployment strategies, and an AED equipment maintenance and inspection plan. Most State AED laws require that plans outline certifying, not just training, anticipated users and AED responders in CPR and AED use.

Medical Oversight:

The FDA requires physician oversight for most AED purchases and some states require a Healthcare Professional to serve as an AED Liaison to perform defibrillator event reviews after each use. We will also notify your local EMS agency as required by law.

Data Management / Tracking and Record Keeping:

Several States require documentation of inspections and maintenance. E-Med tracks the device serial number, model, location, and dates of every AED. Along with AED pads and battery expiration dates, we can include the tracking of your personnel’s CPR & AED training certifications. With E-Med’s web-based AED tracking and Data Management Program, it has never been easier to ensure State Law and OSHA recommended compliance and you are assured expiration dates never catch your organization off guard again.

Action Checklist for Effective Lay Rescuer AED Programs:
o Identify a qualified healthcare provider to provide program medical oversight.

o Identify and train rescuers, taking into account the need for refresher training and rescuer turnover.

o Remember that cardiac arrest victims will need CPR AND an AED - so rescuers should be prepared to not only to use the AED but also to provide high-quality CPR.

o High-Quality CPR requires likely rescuers to use the most up-to-date CPR guidelines.

o AEDs save lives - as long as they are kept in working order and used promptly in cases of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

o Develop and implement a process of ongoing quality improvement that feature routine inspections of AED devices and electrodes, and evaluation of post-event data including response plan effectiveness, rescuer performance, and AED function

o Failing to follow AED state laws regarding maintenance and inspection can be considered grossly negligent if the AED unit is not regularly inspected and maintained.
