Galicia defibrillators regulations


DECRET 38/2017, of March 23, which regulates the installation and use of external defibrillators outside the healthcare environment, and its registry is created.

Article 43.1 of the Spanish Constitution recognizes the right to health protection, so that public powers have the constitutional obligation to protect or establish preventive measures and services necessary for health protection.

In accordance with article 149.1.16a of the Spanish Constitution, the Statute has exclusive competence in matters of foreign health, bases and general coordination of health, and legislation on pharmaceutical products. On the basis of this competence, approve Law 14/1986, of April 25, General Health. Així, no seu article 3 declares as an objective the health system that the mitjans and the actions of which will be oriented priority to the promotion of Saudi Arabia and the prevention of diseases. Així mateix, not article 6, establishes that the actions of the public health administrations will be oriented towards the promotion of Saudi Arabia and to guarantee that these health actions are carried out and are aimed at the prevention of diseases and not just at the cure, guarantee- health assistance is provided in all cases of loss of health.

Article 33.1 of the Statute of Autonomy of Galicia attributes the Autonomous Community to the competence of legislative development and the execution of the basic legislation of the State in matters of internal health, and number 4 of the article establishes that the The Autonomous Community will be able to organize and administer for these purposes within its territory all the services related to the matters expressed above, and will exercise the guardianship of the institutions, entities and foundations in matters of health and social security; o Estat reserva per a si a high inspection conduent a l'accompliment de les functions i competències contingudes en article.

Article 32.3 of Law 8/2008, of July 10, of Saudi Arabia, includes the principle reiteration of the Public System of Saudi Arabia, a comprehensive conception of Saudi Arabia, which includes promotion of Saudi Arabia, protection against situations and circumstances that require health care, in particular protection against environmental hazards, prevention of illness and health care, as well as rehabilitation and social integration, from the perspective of health care. This sentence, in the aforementioned Law 8/2008, of July 10, in article 12.8, establishes that the persons holders of the right to the protection of Saudi Arabia and health care have right to the establishment of measures for the prevention of proven effective malaria. .

In Galicia, cardiovascular diseases constitute two of the most important Saudi problems. Of all emergency situations, cardiopulmonary resuscitation represents the paradigm in which early action and both adequate measures determine the prognosis in terms of recovery of life and minimization of possible consequences.

The most common causes of cardiorespiratory arrest in adults are ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in general, and they have as a fundamental tract a dins cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the chain of survival to electrical defibrillation. These situations, at the immediate disposal of technical technicians, defibrillators, are essential to address both the success of resuscitation efforts, and to ensure continued healthcare assistance. According to the Recommendations for Resuscitation 2015 of the European Resuscitation Council, "the installation of AED in areas where a cardiac arrest can be expected every five years, is considered effective and comparable to other medical interventions."

In the autonomous community, the regulation of the matter must contain the current Decree 99/2005, of April 21, which regulates the training and use of external defibrillators by medical personnel. This regulatory standard included the conditions for out-of-hospital use of two external defibrillators, the authorization of the training entities and the training for the use of two external defibrillators, in accordance with the headings of the various chapters.

Dins of the National Quality Plan of the National Health System, approved on June 28, 2006 by the Interterritorial Consell of the National Health System

ischemic heart disease that included the recommendation to establish a legal framework for the implementation and development of a program to favor the use of two semi-automatic defibrillators in public buildings. The legal framework is currently constituted by Royal Decree 365/2009, of March 20, which establishes the conditions and minimum requirements of safety and quality for the use of automatic and semi-automatic external defibrillators outside the healthcare field, This is pursuant to Royal Decree 1591/2009, dated October 16, which regulates health products. These provisions have the condition of basic norms that are added to the article 149.1.16o of the Spanish Constitution.

Article 5 of the Royal Decree 365/2009, dated March 20, establishes that the health administrations of the autonomous communities promote and recommend the installation of two external semi-automatic defibrillators according to the recommendations of two international organizations, in those countries. What is the focus on the transiti name of people, and promote the opportunistic coordination mechanisms with the devices such as civil protection, firefighters, local police and others that are necessary to ensure the installation and use of these devices.

Furthermore, article 4 of Royal Decree 365/2009, of March 20, provides that public or private entities, together with private persons who intend to install a semi-automatic defibrillator device, must notify the 'health authority of the autonomous community of lloc or do. Establishing what you want to do, make a responsible declaration that completes the requirements provided for in number 2 of this article.

This month, or on December 28, 2006, Directive 2006/123/EC of the European Parliament and the Consell, of December 12, 2006, relating to domestic market services, will come into force. According to the spirit of the aforementioned directive, a simple invocation of general interest does not serve to justify the a priori requirement of certain authorizations, since administrative control is possible during the term mitjançant the procedure of declaration responsible and the subsequent vixilància. The Statute transposed this regulation through Law 17/2009, of November 23, on the access to service activities and its exercise, to Law 25/2009, of December 22, modifying various laws per to the seva adaptation to the arrival on the lliure access to the activitats of services and to your exercise.

Law 20/2013, of December 9, guaranteeing the market unit, establishes in its article 3 that "cap is a general provision, administrative action or quality standard that refers to access or exercise." "Economic activities may not contain conditions or requirements that have a direct or indirect effect of discrimination based on the establishment or residence of the economic operator." Article 16 of the aforementioned law establishes the principle of free economic initiative, so that "access to economic activities and its exercise will be open throughout the national territory and may only be limited according to or established by the law. not provided for in the regulations of the Union. "European or international treaties and conventions." For this reason, not that I attend to the training entities, a new regulation dispenses with the previous authorizations for the training entities and the particular training activities, without preuíxo two controls a posteriori necessary.

In compliance with the provision of Decree 198/2010, of December 2, which regulates the development of the electronic Administration to the Xunta de Galícia and the entities of the dependents, the directive itself serves the regulations on access electronic two citizens for public services It is also easier to present the declarations responsible for telematic mitjans to the electronic address of the Xunta de Galícia.

Take into account the accumulated experience, or the development of two available technological resources, and the changes in normative operations, such as adapting to pre-existing regulations in this matter to the current requirements, seeking greater access to these resources to immediately address situations of cardiorespiratory arrest.

The decree is formatted by four capítols ens calis es recollin, respectively, a les disposició xerais; the requirements, installation, notification and re-existence of two external defibrillators; a qualification and precise training for the management of defibrillators and the conditions of their use; the provisions relating to inspection and sanctioning regime. This regulation is complete with two additional provisions, a transitional one, to adapt countries and serve, a derogatòria, and two decrees, referring to the development of regulations and entry into force.

The virtue, at the request of the competent minister in matters of health, was agreed by the Consultative Council, and logo of the deliberation of the Council of the Xunta de Galicia, at its meeting on March 3, 2000.
