Is your dental clinic ready to act before a cardiac arrest?
The Autonomous Community of Madrid has new regulations regarding this issue. On November 7, 2018, the new regulations applicable to the installation of defibrillators in dental clinics were published.
You can consult the complete regulations here https://www.salvavidas.eu/pdf/Normativas/BOCM-normativa-desfibriladores-clinicas-madrid.pdf
Below, we summarize the most important content for you:
In dental clinics, we must have a basic CPR team if we perform interventional techniques in diagnostic or treatment activities (practically any dental act could be considered as an interventional technique).
The material to perform basic life support maneuvers must be at least:
Self-inflating balloon bag with 02 reservoir and final respiratory pressure valve
Basic devices for airway management
Medication to solve an emergency situation
Semiautomatic defibrillator (if surgical activities are performed)
The order gives an adaptation period of 18 months to authorized clinics. Therefore, they need this material by May 2020.
From Proyecto Vidavidas we are helping dental clinics to be in accordance with the regulations. Making visits for personalized advice.
We do not want anyone to be out of the regulations, for this reason, we have created an offer designed for you.
Until May 15, 2020 (date with active obligation regulations) you can get the following cardio protection services:
ZOLL AED PLUS defibrillator of last generation, with total help to the CPR. Best rated and best selling worldwide.
