Unraveling the Mystery of AED Ownership Laws

Sara_Henn_-_500x500.jpg

 

Sara Henn, Customer Care Coordinator with AED Superstore, the world’s largest distributor of automated external defibrillators joins eHealth Radio and the Heart Health, Emergency Care & Health News Channels to discuss unraveling the mystery of AED Ownership Laws.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Sara Henn discuss the following:

  • We have been hearing a lot about automated external defib-rillators recently and they seem to be popping up in more and more public places, but I have heard there are some who are concerned about buying an AED because each state has laws governing AED ownership, and they are all a little different.  What can you tell us about that?
  • Let’s talk about each of those components - the first one you mentioned was oversight by a physician - what, exactly, does that mean?  Do I have to have a doctor come in and check my AED?
  • You mentioned training. Is this just training on the AED itself?  And are the people who are formally trained the only ones who should use the device?
  • So notification of emergency medical services - this is your local 911 center, right?  Should you need to let them know you have an AED?
  • So the last thing you mentioned is maintenance - I am assuming this is maintenance of the device itself?
  • It sounds like there could be a lot to remember with regard to AED laws - do you have any recommendations to make life easier for our listeners?

 

Sara Henn is proud to be a part of Allied 100, LLC. She has been with the company for 10 years and her current role is Customer Care Coordinator.  Her primary function is to train and inform the customer care team.
