AED Compliance Management
Last week, we discussed the importance of having an AED in the workplace. This week, we’re taking a look at why it’s important to make sure your equipment is in compliance. At Cardio Partners, we’re committed to making sure that your workplace is both well-prepared and well-protected in the event of a medical emergency. In addition to our CPR and first aid training courses, AED sales and maintenance, and our comprehensive consultation services, our user-friendly online AED compliance management system helps ensure that your AED is both in compliance with local laws and is emergency-ready.
Why is AED Compliance Important?
Each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. Sudden cardiac arrest — an electrical malfunction in the heart that disrupts the flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and other vital organs — is a leading cause of death among Americans (American Heart Association). While these startling statistics make a strong case for the importance of CPR training and certification, they also shed light on the significance of properly maintained AEDs and investing in a full-service AED Compliance Management System for your workplace.
Out-of-compliance AEDs not only cost lives, but they result in heartbreakingly tragic and unnecessary lawsuits. Keep your AEDs in good working order with a reliable Compliance Management System. AED Compliance Management Systems are the easiest and safest way to make sure that your equipment is up-to-date and are ready to save lives. You can also dramatically reduce your legal liability by investing in a compliance system.
What Should Be Included in an AED Compliance Management System?
Whether you have a single AED or dozens, a user-friendly online AED compliance management system can help reduce your liability. Look for a system that includes the following features:
A full-service AED Compliance Management System makes it easy to register and track your life-saving devices. Make sure your team and your clients are well protected by keeping all pertinent information and instructions about your AEDs in an easily accessible place: at your fingertips.
Monthly AED Check Reminders
We understand that business owners, facilities managers, school administrators, executive directors, and medical personnel are busy. With so much on your plate, it’s easy to overlook AED maintenance checks. With Cardio Partners’ online AED Compliance Management System, however, you’ll never forget another check-in. Our system sends an email reminder every 30 days so you can enjoy peace of mind while keeping your focus on your business.
AED Check Logging
Many states require monthly inspections of AEDs. Online systems ensure that your equipment remains in compliance year-round.
AED Unit Readiness and Expiration Tracking
Even with monthly reminders, checks, and routine preventative maintenance, AEDs expire. Compliance Management Systems help keep you up-to-date and your equipment in good working order.
24-Hour AED Use Helpline
Whether you’re training new employees, have a general question about how to use your equipment, or need immediate assistance, full-service AED compliance management systems offer online chat, phone, email, and help desk support.
Resource Library Access
Laws regarding AEDs vary by state. We understand that finding the right information can be overwhelming! With an AED Compliance Management System from Cardio Partners, you’ll gain access to a comprehensive online library of legal, statutory, and regulatory requirements.
Rest assured knowing that a physician medical director is assigned to provide, review, and approve current rescue protocols.
AED Prescription Maintenance
AEDs are manufactured and sold under guidelines approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA may require someone who purchases an AED to present a physician’s prescription for the device (American Heart Association). Compliance management systems help users maintain current prescriptions for their onsite AEDs.
Leave compliance to the compliance professionals with a turn-key management system.
