Dental offices are expected to identify risks and implement solutions to protect the public and members of staff. SCA can be identified as an emerging risk within dental offices. This indicates the importance for dental offices to have immediate access to an AED in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
AS SCA is a leading cause of adult death in the U.S. it should be advised for all dental practices to install an AED, as doing so means you are able to respond to an emergency situation.
Regular Checks Of Equipment
Once you have an AED installed, it is important that the device receives regular health checks and is monitored for decreasing battery and pad life.
If an emergency situation arises in a dentist office and the AED equipment has not been looked after, certain elements will not function properly and the unit will not be ready to use for a rescue when it is needed.
