Catalan standard on external defibrillators - Regulation and obligation

In Catalonia, the 151 / 2012 decree regulates the regulations on the use, installation and training of defibrillators outside the hospital environment, those that we have seen on occasion at the airport, shopping centers, on the street, in the metro, or even if we are lucky, in our own place of work. Anyone can get a defibrillator by following the requirements of the decree at the private or public level.

The regulations indicate that an initial official course of 6 hours of duration must be passed in order to obtain the official defibrillator management accreditation with specific content and characteristics; the training center must be authorized, number of students per instructor, student evaluation, student registration, necessary material for the internship, renewal of the course.

The defibrillators that are located in public spaces are accessible to the general public and their use is allowed if we do not have the official accreditation, they are usually video-surveillance and connected to the 112, the idea is that they are helpful in an emergency situation and used by non-medical personnel that can help in a cardiac arrest that is when they should be used until the arrival of professional emergency teams.
