not sure about the non-trained PAD
all the ones in our area, ice rinks , library etc,
we've had (the firefighters) to train a few employees in each location the proper usage.
i'm not familiar with any (non-training types)
you need to look for pace makers/ nicotine patches/ previous heart surguries/ nitro tablets etc...
just adding my 2 cents

Subject: [E-Chir] Differences in Defibrilators
Brian the Green here (1st aid cert) There was mention in one response about Defibrilators and those trained in them. It would be good for a brief review of the different types of the Defibs. The original designs did indeed need qualifications in their use. Some of the newer ones still do. However there are ones that dont. IIRC these are P.A.D. for Public Access Defibrilator. These are meant for even non-1st-aiders to use. They are appearing in places like malls and some buildings with alot of seniors. >NOT< all defibs though are P.A.D. If it is not then it is supposed to be secured, like behind a secuirty desk or in an office. IT would be good know if there is a defib at a site whether it is P.A.D. or not. I would appreaciate if Xristina (or other higher cert) can confirm or correct my above statements. Brian the Green ------------------------------------ Yahoo!
