They discussed further AED awareness and ongoing education. They provided an introduction, overview and review of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and manual defibrillators.
In a post-webinar survey, attendees were asked to share how the webinar will help them improve in their role.
“When our organization switches to a new fleet of AED and defibs, we will be able to give information on what models are most tailored to their needs and the cost/benefit of the differences,” Biomedical Engineer T. Wade said.
“Brings in insight for my surgery center and also ideas for me to include in discussion for the entire campus to improve our quality of care,” EVI Manager – J. Jordan said.
“We have over 100 AEDs at our facility, anything that pertains to this topic is beneficial,” said G. Koch, BMET III.
“Understanding the differences in AEDs and if the hospital were to purchase new ones being able to help in the process,” shared Senior Biomed Tech G. Haungs.
“Excellent knowledge of AEDs and defibrillators will help me carry out proper maintenance management of them for the purpose of proper patient management,” Chief Biomedical Technologist E. Enyi said.
“It was a great first exposure to the devices. Good to know the variation in configurations by each vendor,” shared M. Pendell, BMET student.
“We are taking over inspections and maintenance of AED devices in our system and the webinar helped with this,” Lead Tech Clinical Engineering E. Bican said.
“The webinar did give me an opportunity to see some other brands of defibs. I’ve always dealt with the Physio-Control Lifepaks so it was good to hear about the others and the features that they offer. I liked hearing about the visual CPR features that others have,” said L. Wakefield, BMET II.
“It will help me better improve my role as a biomedical technician by knowing that there are various types of AEDS out there for health care facilities,” Biomedical Technician A. Bigcoat said.
“I had never seen any Physio-Control or Philips defibs before. Now, if the hospital decides to change brands I can at least be a little bit knowledgeable if they ask questions,” said M. Kommers, CBET II.
