The range we keep of defibrillators in Adelaide are some of the world’s leading brands, including Philips HeartStart, HeartSine, LIFEPAK and ZOLL. These leading brands have been on the market for many years, which demonstrates reliability, and provides assurance that you will be buying a market tested product.
Whilst the defibrillators on our range are very easy to use, with clear voice prompts to guide even the untrained user. We find some of the most popular defibrillators for home are the HeartSine 360P Defibrillator and the Philips HeartStart HS1 defibrillator. In part due to the size of the defibrillator and being well established brands. Philips HeartStart has been on the market for over two decades.
When considering a defibrillator for work, the HeartSine 360P and the Philips HeartStart HS1 are very popular too. However, if your workplace has children attending that are under the age of 8, such as a school or child care centre, a defibrillator with universal pads is of benefit.
Universal pads mean the same set of pads can be used on an adult or child by simply pressing a defibrillator to put the defib into child mode. This is sometimes preferred over buying separate paediatric pads and swapping them in an emergency. The defibrillators on range that contain universal pas are the LIFEPAK CR2 series, and the ZOLL AED 3.
Defibrillator Legislation Bill in SA
At the end of 2022 the following defibrillator bill was passed by both houses in South Australia to make defibrillators mandatory in certain workplaces.
Automated External Defibrillators (Public Access) Bill 2022
This is very positive news for heart health in the workplace, and improving the work, health, and safety aspect of the organisations. The bill will provide a period of implementation for the relevant businesses, and government organisations.
More information regarding the bill can be found at the following link:
Whilst this is exciting news, defibrillators are more costly than having a mandatory fire extinguisher, or First Aid kit on the premises. We do expect that the South Australian government will look at opportunities to introduce potential grant and subsidy programs to assist organisations with offsetting part of the cost of purchasing a defibrillator.
Having easy access to a defibrillator and being able to use it within the first minute of an emergency can increase the patients’ chances of survival by up to 90%, where every additional minute that passed can reduce the survival rate by approximately 10%.
With the South Australian government working toward introducing an increasing number of defibrillators in the workplace, the goal will be to dramatically improve cardiac arrest survival rates in the state if a defibrillator is easily accessible and within reach so to speak.
