AED Defibrillator Testing

Cardiac arrest is a sudden and life-threatening event. Every minute counts until a life-saving shock is delivered, restoring a patient’s heart to a normal rhythm.

Verifying the performance of defibrillators is a routine and necessary process. Several automated external defibrillator brands (AEDs) have self-testing functions.

However, with the number of adverse AED events reported, and the addition of impedance-sensing circuitry in defibrillators and AEDs, routine testing and relying on self-tests might not be enough.

Make sure the emergency is about the patient, not the equipment

Top 5 Common Preventative Maintenance Checks Required on an AED or defibrillator that should be performed at least once per year include:

Preventative Maintenance Checks Required on an AED

Energy delivery
ECG analysis results
Shockable vs. non-shockable wave recognition
Alerts and Indicators
Audio/Visual Prompts

Fluke Biomedical reported:
"More than 7200 AEDs failing per year! Identify these cases before they happen. It’s lifesaving!"
