Workshops - Day 2
An Introduction to Defibrillation and Transcutaneous Pacing
An Introduction to Defibrillation and Transcutaneous Pacing.
Defibrillators have an important role to play in providing the necessary intervention required for successful CPR procedures. Advancements in technology have given emergency medical services staff the tools to deliver advanced life support solutions, reducing potentially fatal outcomes. AEDs are also improving out-of-hospital cardiac arrest outcomes, and can be found globally in most public places for layman’s use.
However, defibrillators are hazardous medical devices, and are certainly not without risk. With this in mind, regular performance and safety tests of defibrillators will further improve patient safety, by ensuring the devices meet manufacturers’ specifications, are accurate, and meet their intended purpose of use.
The workshop will cover:
-A brief history of defibrillation
-The heart and ECG
-Testing a defibrillator – A typical PM test using the Rigel UniPulse 400
