Legislation that regulates external defibrillators in the Canary Islands

Today we know that for many decades we have directed all efforts towards the inpatient and out-of-hospital treatment (ambulances) of cardiorespiratory arrests (CRP), prevention being really the most powerful weapon. Through the installation of external defibrillators in public and private spaces, and basic training for people in their management, we are ensuring that the general population is able to act before a CPA or for cardiorespiratory, increasing the probability of survival of the victim and decreasing the possible brain sequelae.

The Canarian legislation indicates that the spaces required to have an external defibrillator DEA / DESA are:

Stations and interchanges of land transport in populations of more than 50.000 inhabitants.

All airports and commercial ports.

Hotels with more than 1.000 squares.

Public sports facilities of populations of more than 50.000 inhabitants and with an average daily influx of more than 1.000 users.

Establishments dependent on public administrations of populations of more than 50.000 inhabitants and with a daily average inflow greater than 1.000 users.

The regulations recommend the installation of defibrillators in:

Stations and interchanges of land transport in populations of more than 20.000 inhabitants.

Public or private sports facilities with a daily average inflow superior to 500 people.

The hotels with 700 and 1.000 squares.

Ships and passenger planes operating inter-island lines.

Fire services, local police and civil protection in populations with more than 20.000 inhabitants.

Educational centers with a daily average inflow superior to 2.000 people.

Graduates or graduates in Medicine or Nursing, and technicians in health emergencies (TES).
