The importance of having a cardioprotected space in your company

 

Currently, more and more companies are prioritizing the health of their workers and creating cardioprotected spaces both in work areas and in common areas of the company.

Including this decision within company policies will help reduce the high number of accidents at work that can be contracted by cardiovascular diseases. It will also help to improve labor relations between workers and the company knowing that the company looks after their interests and is committed to their job security.

Why have a cardioprotected space

We have to think that the cardiovascular diseases they only affect older people and nothing is further from reality. These diseases can occur suddenly and without any prognosis prior to their appearance, since they are considered non-traumatic pathologies.

Any person without any previous pathology and apparently in good health can suddenly suffer a cardiovascular disease within the work environment.

How should we proceed

Acting during the first eight minutes is vitally important to save the patient. If we are faced with these accidents at work, not acting immediately can cause the death of the person who is suffering a cardiorespiratory event.

Receiving care during this first period of time is of vital importance in order to preserve the patient's survival, it must be taken into account that each minute that passes reduces the possibility of survival by 10%.

Social Responsibility

There is no regulation that obliges companies to install tools to guarantee cardioprotected spaces within work environments. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the company to be able to guarantee the protection of the health of its employees.

Every 20 minutes a sudden death occurs in Spain and there are few people who have the knowledge to be able to act against this situation by applying life support maneuvers. For this reason, creating cardioprotected spaces by installing defibrillators within work areas can increase the survival of affected people in 75% of cases.

The actions of Corporate Social Responsibility They can also be a work to be highlighted within the Social Responsibility Plan that exists within the company.

Aspects to consider before choosing your team

Defibrillators installed in cardioprotected spaces allow offering security and protection to those people who may suffer a cardiorespiratory arrest. However, to offer the maximum guarantee in terms of its correct operation, some requirements must be met in terms of its installation and use: 

Connectivity

La connectivity of these teams is essential, so they must offer a module for immediate communication with the emergency medical services, thus guaranteeing a direct connection at any time of the day.

It is also important to highlight the incorporation of a system of geolocation of the team in order to be able to find these cardioprotected spaces in an emergency situation.

El notification system after the event must be one of the essential requirements for its installation, for this reason the equipment has the service of generating reports after the use of the device. In this way, the interventions that have been able to be carried out are recorded.

Offer autonomous equipment that can be placed in any space without requiring an electrical installation for its operation, is the key to success for these medical equipment.

Monitoring

The best system to guarantee the correct operation of the equipment in real time is monitor the team continuously. Otherwise, equipment optimization could not be offered permanently. As it is not a device that is used regularly, it must always be in perfect condition when you want to use it, which is why its control and monitoring is key so that it is ready in any case of emergency.

The maintenance requirements of these cardioprotected spaces depend on the autonomous community in which it is installed and the owner will be responsible for providing these services to the devices.
