Considerations for purchasing a defibrillator
When deciding it’s best to take into account a few key considerations, which may include the following:
Do you have children at your location/ site?
Where are you locating the defibrillator?
Depending on where your defibrillator is located may also change what type of defib you purchase and also what type of wall cabinet is most suitable. Considerations include the climate/ weather and safety.
Do you have a budget?
Have an idea of a price you’re happy to pay and work out a defib package within your budget.
Do you need a wall bracket or wall cabinet?
Do you need training?
For certain people a video refresher may work and others may need a more personal training experience.
Defibrillator maintenance is easy. However, it can be easily forgotten.
With Response For Life ‘Weekly Inspection Tags’ we encourage clients to inspect their defib on a regular basis (which only takes a minute).
However, we also offer programs like PlusTrac which monitor your defib, store data and send reminders.
