What are cardioprotected or cardiosafe spaces? A cardioprotected space is a delimited area with at least one defibrillator installed along with all the necessary equipment to reverse a cardiorespiratory arrest in less than 5 minutes.

The main thing to be a cardioprotected space is that it has to be equipped with a external defibrillator (DESA / AED), a display case to protect the defibrillator with a 112 call, and the approved DEA signage with which to correctly signpost the shortest route to the location of the defibrillator.

A certified cardiosafe space must also have an automatic 112 call device, civil liability and vandalism insurance, defibrillator management and, very importantly, previously complete a basic life support course and use of the DEA DESA defibrillator for the human team that works or resides in that space.

To the cardioprotection equipment and first aid training, add the technical maintenance service of the cardioprotected space with which to ensure the perfect state of operation of the defibrillators 365 days a year.

Depending on which spaces, it is advisable to have civil liability insurance of up to €2.000.000 and theft or vandalism insurance, along with the rest of the registration requirements necessary to comply with the regulations of the autonomous community to which you belong.

Remember that in the event of a cardiac arrest, each minute that passes reduces the chances of survival by 10%, with 5 minutes being the safety time limit to avoid neurological sequelae and death.

Cardioprotected spaces, apart from defibrillators and all necessary devices, can also contain educational material and infographics that help inform people about what to do in a situation of sudden cardiac arrest, useful information for people without training in life support and use. of the DESA DEA.

There are regulations on DESA DEA defibrillators that require the installation of defibrillators in crowded spaces with a high influx of people; although more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of cardioprotecting any public and private space against sudden death, and they purchase a defibrillator to cardioprotect homes, companies or entities.
