The Webinar Wednesday presentation “Defibrillator Testing Best Practices” was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI. The webinar was presented by Jerry Zion and sponsored by Fluke Biomedical.
Zion, Global Training Manager at Fluke Biomedical, discussed how testing changes when HTM professionals think of AEDs as a fire extinguisher or an ACLS defibrillator as a fire hose! And what about the times when the defibrillator includes a temporary external pacemaker – how would that change the testing procedure?
He shared valuable insights with 271 attendees during the live presentation and more have viewed a recording of the webinar online.
Attendees gave positive reviews and answered the question “How useful was the information presented in today’s webinar?” in a post-webinar survey.
“I work with Lifepak 12 and 15 defibrillators at my hospital and the information provided in this video has shown me a better understanding for testing,” said J.Galindez, Clinical Engineer.
“Very applicable information to biomeds and engineers. Defib safety and testing is largely important and often the testing is overlooked/under-performed,” shared T. Wade, Biomedical Engineer.
“Great review and update. No longer involved with defibrillators, but still geeky about them,” said H. Tucker, Principal, FSE.
“Great information backing up what I’ve been insisting we do as a shop – especially concerning AEDs. Some people are satisfied with only what the manufacturer recommends instead of the purpose of the tests,” Biomedical Engineering Support Specialist S. Rodriquez said.
“Very useful to all facilities and biomeds,” Field Service Engineer A. Herchuck said.
“This was one of the most useful webinars yet. I learned I need to step up my AED testing,” Biomedical Engineer P. Phillips said.
“The presentation was excellent, very informative, packed with useful information. Very good job guys,” said T. Bracewall, Senior Instructor.
“I really enjoyed the webinar and the information was very relevant because I PM defibrillators for our hospital and clinics around town. We have the Lifepak 12s and it was great to hear how the Lifepak 15s were capable of doing more things. Thanks for the webinar,” said R. Kelley, Biomedical Technician.
“It was helpful and also eye opening (with regards to testing frequency around the country/world),” said M. Mortensen, CBET.
“The information was very useful. I will be bringing up a few of these points to re-evaluate our defib and AED testing practices. Especially testing AED output,” said B. Branning, BMET II.
