Regulations on external defibrillators in Catalonia

Regulation / obligation of installation and use of external defibrillators in Catalonia, legislation on training in external defibrillators, facilities for cardioprotected spaces and their maintenance in the Catalan community.

 

Catalan standard on external defibrillators - Regulation and obligation

 

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

 

Characteristics of the Catalan standard for the use of external defibrillators 

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.

Where there is an obligation to install an external defibrillator in Catalonia 

There are certain places that due to their characteristics and their influx of people, according to the defibrillator regulations, are required to have an approved defibrillator and its maintenance and have trained personnel in addition to recording all the data that indicate the requirements to register the defibrillator. However, if these characteristics are not given, its installation is only recommended but not the obligation.

The decree 30 / 2015 indicates in Appendix III the places where the defibrillators are to be installed.

In addition to the regulation of defibrillators and their training, the decree aims to achieve a higher survival rate for sudden death and greater voluntary participation by all citizens, whether at the private, public or private level.
