Regulations on cardioprotect countries in Spain

Regulations on cardioprotect countries in Spain


In Spain there is a state regulation on DESA & DEA defibrillators, regulated by Royal Decree 365/2009; Subsequently, the autonomous communities have legislated their own regulations on external defibrillators with some differences.

Royal Decree 365/2009 aims to regulate the conditions and minimum requirements for the use and maintenance of external semi-automatic defibrillators outside the healthcare environment throughout the Spanish territory.

The regulation established by this Royal Decree allows the semi-automatic external defibrillators DESA and the automatic external defibrillators DEA with equipment suitable for cardioprotection of countries.

Legislation on defibrillators DESA DEA to Spain

In 2009, the Spanish Government will mark the bases of the regulations for the regulation of these DESA DEA equipment in Royal Decree 365/2009, of March 20. If the conditions and minimum requirements for safety and quality are established in the use of these defibrillator equipment outside the healthcare environment.

Despite the importance of these portable cardioprotection devices, Spanish legislation will not contemplate a homogenous system at the national level that requires the installation and maintenance of these DESA DEA defibrillators in areas with a high influx of people. , but rather it will be left to the autonomous communities to manage and regulate the installation and use of DESA defibrillators.


Regulations on DESA defibrillators per communities

On the other hand, the regulations of each autonomous community on the installation of AED defibrillators have favored the awareness of citizens about the importance of AED defibrillators and training in basic life support, which has driven the creation of cardioprotection countries outside of mandatory regulations.

In Spain, the 17 autonomous communities of Ceuta and Melilla have their own regulations on defibrillators, these are the regulations that we must comply with when installing DESA DEA defibrillators in the different communities of the Spanish territory.

See here regulations on defibrillators of the teva autonomous community, in what existixen obligations, guidelines for the proper installation and maintenance both of which guarantee the optimal state of conservation of the automatic external defibrillators (DEA) or semi-automatic (DESA).

Due to the occasional use of defibrillators in cardioprotect areas, traditionally the maintenance of these electromedical equipment DESA DEA is carried out using technical techniques that are transferred to the cardioprotect area to carry out the review and supervision of defibrillator status. For the rest of the components, DESA defibrillator maintenance companies carry out periodic in-person reviews, expiration control and status supervision in person and online.

The law establishes that the perfect status of the use of DESA defibrillators is the responsibility of the public or private organizations that install these DEA equipment, following the conservation and supervision instructions marked by the manufacturer of the DESA.


Is training in basic vital support mandatory?

The regulations on cardioprotegits countries indicate that Training must be provided to non-health personnel, but for citizens in general there is no obligation to train in first aid techniques., the obligation is regulated by the regulations of each autonomous community, as a general rule this mandatory training in CPR techniques only exists in countries that are required by regulations to have cardiac rescue devices and AED defibrillators.


Companies, associations and municipalities commit to combating death


In light of the growing awareness of cardioprotecting vital spaces, Neosalus holds face-to-face workshops for associations, companies and councils to train citizens in cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques and basic life support with practical uses of the AED defibrillatorThese mass workshops for the entire family are becoming more popular every day because of society's awareness of the importance of being prepared before death is over.


Basic life support courses with CPR maneuver practices

Regarding maintenance Why does a DESA also supervise online?


The maintenance tasks of the cardioprotect countries can be divided into scheduled technical reviews always carried out in person at the client's facilities, and the random incidents due to external causes or failures of the defibrillator that are almost impossible to detect if it is not available. online monitoring of the defibrillators.

These incidents outside of the maintenance set by the manufacturer are impossible to detect without an online supervision system from the DESA team that notifies in real time any incident to the technical service to resolve it. 


Maintenance of defibrillators with Neocontrol DEA DESA


Neocontrol is a device developed by Neosalus for the supervision of AED defibrillators online and in real time, it is the only device to supervision of defibrillators with 3G/4G or 5G connectivity, and all from our Cardionlive app with which we can supervise and manage the defibrillators in real time.

The supervision of the status of the defibrillators with Neocontrol reduces economic costs and CO2 emissions due to the displacement of supervision of the equipment, while guaranteeing the perfect status of the AED for 365 days.

Check if the defibrillator park has online supervision even for the cardioprotection team, remember that it is the owner of the defibrillators who is responsible for the perfect maintenance status and use.

With Neocontrol and the tracking of possible incidents and resolution in real time, our clients always have the security of complying with the regulations.
