It has been observed many times that machines that we consider to work, when we need them, we are in front of surprises.
Especially in machines that are used to save human lives, such as automatic defibrillators (AEDs), which are located in selected locations, airports, planes, ships, railway stations, companies, public services and in general where there is a gathering place for the public, resulting in a high probability of developing a health problem (heart attack).
The manufacturers of these devices state that they do not need to be checked by specialized technicians, the user just has to check its condition every day, from the indicator light that the device has on it.
But how does the user ensure that the device will work when he needs it?
Too many opinions have been expressed and several articles have been published specifically on the ECRI Medical Devices Association (www.ecri.org), on the subject of testing or not. The bottom line is that it’s up to the user to feel safer.
Fast Medical Service, having social responsibility and considering that it is important for the user to know, at least once a year, that his device really works, applies the policy of preventive defibrillation to a special human parameter simulator, which fully simulates the emergency condition of a patient with a heart problem and records the defibrillator response.
At the end of the tests it issues a report and a written report of the operating status of the device.
This ensures that the owner of the device operates in real conditions.
