Establishing an AED Program in your workplace or community will help eliminate the weak link in the chain of survival: early defibrillation. When a person suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, for every minute that passes without defibrillation, their chances of survival drop by approximately 10%. Implementing an AED Program in your workplace or community will make sure you are ready to respond.
MediQuest provides a complete AED Life Saving Program which includes:
- Site assessment to determine ideal AED placement
- Medical oversight
- E-minder notification of service and training
- Written procedures
- AED inspection, service, and maintenance
- Post-use review of event data and consultation
MediQuest recommends the Defibtech Lifeline AED for its ease of use, durability, and low cost of ownership. For business use, we recommend the Lifeline AED complete with 2 sets of electrodes, soft carry case, prep kit, data card, and wall-mount bracket.
It is important for workers to be trained on the specific make and model of AED in the workplace. We can provide various levels of training and will help determine the appropriate level of first aid course to suit your needs.
All elements of the MediQuest AED Program including equipment functionality (regular servicing), training, written procedures, clinical support for responders, documentation and tracking of AEDs, components and expiry dates are approved and authorized by MediQuest’s National Medical Director.
