Defibrillators in metro, train, ports and airports

Cardioprotected public transport stations against sudden death, legislation and regulations for the cardioprotection of ports, airports, train and metro stations in Spain.


Regulations that require the installation of defibrillators in public transport

Cardioprotection in Spain is marked by the regulations of the Spanish autonomous communities, public access to defibrillation is essential to overcome a sudden death, because for every minute that passes after a cardiac arrest the chances of survival are reduced by 10%, being from the seventh minute very difficult to rescue the victim without sequels.

Railway stations, seaports, train stations, airports or bus stations are places of great transit of people, so it is statistically very likely that a cardiorespiratory arrest will occur at any time, which makes the installation of defibrillators and thus being able to offer cardioprotection to all users and workers of public transport services. A great advance for the awareness of the importance of cardioprotect all possible spaces, the installation of defibrillators for buses, taxis, subways, trams, trains, commuter railways, ships and ferries, including airplanes and high-speed trains where every day it is more common to find them.


Defibrillators in outdoor spaces expand accessibility to cardioprotection

 

By installing public defibrillators in common areas such as bus stations or some of the suburban train stations with each municipality that houses them, we are expanding accessibility to the defibrillator 24 hours 365 days; That is why more and more municipalities are opting for this type of defibrillator installations outdoors in order to cover more spaces and create more cardioprotected areas.

The idea is to expand the accessibility of public defibrillators for those municipalities that do not have an emergency service or ambulances in their health center or office, also for companies located in areas with public access areas

From Proyecto Salvavidas we support the installation of defibrillators in outdoor spaces with public access, since they expand the coverage in cardioprotection and make it possible to have a defibrillator available at 24 hours a day to help any sudden death that may occur in the station and its surroundings, the cardioprotection of A bus station also serves to cardioprotect the population residing in the surroundings, as long as the installed defibrillator is located in a public access space.  



Defibrillators in police vehicles and fire trucks

It is increasingly common to see defibrillators in police vehicles, civil protection vehicles, defibrillators for fire trucks or maintenance services of a municipality, this is another way of cardioprotecting public spaces, whether large or small populations install and carry defibrillators in the Local police patrol cars make it possible to cover a greater space for cardioprotection of the population, whether due to an intervention in an accident or a call for help, they are the first to arrive at the scene of the incident, as well as equipping the trucks with defibrillators of firefighters, since many times they are the first to intervene in an emergency, like the state security forces carrying a defibrillator in the patrol car, extends cardioprotection. Defibrillators in police vehicles require certain characteristics, not all DEA / DESA external defibrillators work correctly at 60ºC, it must be taken into account that police vehicles in summer, and when they are closed, can exceed those temperatures, and make the operation of the defibrillator under those conditions may not work properly.

 

The renting of defibrillators is the ideal modality to cardioprotect stations and public transport


Renting a cardioprotected space is the preferred modality by most transport stations such as airports, ports, metro, train or bus stations. With the maintenance of the cardioprotected space and the defibrillator, taking into account the expiration of the patches or electrodes, the expiration of the batteries or the courtesy defibrillator service in case of failure, they make renting the ideal modality to cardioprotect the facilities of any company. In maintenance we control the level of the batteries, they perform self-test of operation for their perfect condition for use.
