Who is Allowed to Use a Defibrillator?
One of the most significant advantages of modern defibrillators is their user-friendly design. AEDs, in particular, are designed for individuals with little to no training. Quick action is essential in emergencies, and many of our products are equipped to guide users through the process with clear and concise instructions.
However, it’s also essential to ensure that designated personnel, such as first aid responders, are familiar with the device and its operation.
How Long Do Defibrillators Last?
The lifespan of a defibrillator can vary based on factors such as use, storage conditions, and maintenance schedule adherence. In general, AEDs used in public spaces and workplaces have a lifespan ranging from 10 to 15 years. However, barely used devices stored in a safe place can last longer.
To extend the lifespan of a defibrillator, users must follow specific requirements, which vary between models. Generally, regular maintenance involves visual inspections for damage and periodic checks of functionality, battery status, and electrode integrity.
Manufacturers design defibrillators with built-in diagnostics to alert users when the device is approaching the end of its life.
