The company urges organizations to manage their supplies months ahead to ensure there are enough Automated External Defibrillator (AED) pads during the holidays.
AEDLand, the distributor of affordable yet quality defibrillators and AEDs, is reminding public and private organizations to update their Automated External Defibrillator (AED) pads. According to the company's spokesperson, the COVID-19 supply chain systems are tight, and ordering supplies months ahead of time ensures that supplies are in place when needed.
“The holiday season is approaching fast and we at AEDLand want to alert public and private organizations to be prepared for one of the busiest times around. One of the things they should look out for is the maintenance of their AED devices. This includes replacements of AED pads to ensure they perform accordingly when needed,” said the company spokesperson.
According to research , the risk of cardiac death is nearly 5% higher around the holidays than it is throughout the rest of the year. This fact may be attributed to consuming huge amounts of alcoholic beverages and fatty and salty food. People also tend to forget their fitness routines and medical check-ups due to back-to-back schedules on their holiday plans.
AED pads typically have a lifespan of 18 to 30 months which is why supply checks and routine maintenance should be conducted for all AED units. This practice is also part of an organization's AED program to ensure the safety of people who will be using its AED device.
AED pads expire due to their gel adhesion. The gel binds the pad and the skin of a sudden cardiac arrest victim for good skin contact. When there is good contact, the AED can accurately assess the patient's heart rhythm and determine whether or not a sudden cardiac arrest is occurring.
But as time passes, the gel dries out and its chemical composition degrades. AED pads won't stick well to the skin if they are used after their expiration date, especially when cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is performed. AED pads with weak adhesion may peel away from the skin during compressions, decreasing the likelihood that the AED will offer efficient analysis and therapy.
