Defibrillators in metro, train, ports and airports

Stations of public transport cardioprotected against sudden death, legislation and regulations for the cardioprotection of ports, airports, train stations and metro 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, maritime ports, train stations, airports or bus stations are areas of high traffic of people, so it is statistically very likely that a cardiorespiratory arrest occurs at any time, which makes it essential to install defibrillators and thus be able to offer cardioprotection to all users and workers of public transport services. A breakthrough for awareness of the importance of cardioproteger all possible spaces, the installation of defibrillators for buses, taxis, metros, trams, trains, commuter railways, ships and ferries, including airplanes and high-speed trains where every day it is more everyday to find them.

Defibrillators in outdoor spaces expand the accessibility to cardioprotection

By installing public defibrillators in common areas such as bus stations or some of the commuter train stations with each municipality that houses them, we are expanding the accessibility to the defibrillator 24 hours 365 days; that is why more and more municipalities are opting for this type of outdoor defibrillation facilities 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 cardioproteger public spaces, whether large or small populations install and carry defibrillators in the patrol cars of the local police makes it possible to cover more space of cardioprotection of the population, either by an intervention in an accident or a distress call, they are the first to arrive at the place of the incident, likewise to also provide defibrillators to the trucks firefighters, since many times they are the first to intervene in an emergency, like the state security bodies carry a defibrillator in the patrol car, extensive cardioprotection. Defibrillators in police vehicles require certain characteristics, not all external DEA / DESA defibrillators work correctly at 60ºC, it must be borne in mind that police vehicles in summer, and when they are closed, can overcome these temperatures, and make the operation of the defibrillator under those conditions does not work properly.

The renting of defibrillators is the ideal modality for cardioproteger stations and public transports

The renting of a cardioprotected space is the preferred modality for 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 breakdown, make the renting the ideal modality to cardioprotect the facilities of any company. In the maintenance we control the level of the batteries, they perform self-test of operation for its perfect state for its use.
