New decree from the Government of Catalonia for the use of defibrillators
Any citizen can use the AED if necessary.
In the coming months Girona will have 650 defibrillators implanted throughout the province.
But there was a key point in this ambitious project: to achieve a modification of the decree that limited the use of defibrillators to people trained. This hindered the recovery of the victim, since there are only 10 minutes of time and that every minute are lost chance of survival.
The use of DEA by the pedestrian, the first person who goes and sees the person fall unconscious, was critical of the entire chain of survival. AED use is not hazardous neither for the public nor for the victim, and can save your life.
This milestone has been achieved. Thanks to the project "Girona Territori cardioprotegit" any citizen can use the AED if necessary.
THE DECREE CAN BE FOUND IN THE DOCUMENTS ATTACHED. (in catalan)
