Why test your AED Defibrillator?
Automatic External Defibrillators (AED’s) are required to operate to stringent criteria covering the amount of shock energy delivered, detection of shockable and non-shockable rhythms, and initiation of CPR cycles. The device manufacturer provides in-built self-checks to ensure that your AED performs to the correct standards but, in our experience, this is not fool proof and owners are often unsure about what they need to do to maintain it. Our test and inspection service compliments the manufacturer’s self-checks by completing all the necessary user checks, examining the self-check status and, where applicable, performing a simulated dynamic test which demonstrates the AED’s full capability and records the actual shock energy delivered.
This is ideal for the ongoing monitoring and maintenance of AED defibrillators and to assist with the training of individuals who may be responsible for such devices – some of whom may be reluctant to touch the device, never mind maintain it! We find that many customers like to witness the dynamic testing which demonstrates exactly how the device will react and respond during real-life use. This is great for product familiarisation plus you also receive an inspection certificate along with test results and a summary of recommendations.
