  1. Say you're performing CPR on a patient, and your partner arrives with an AED. You do not stop performing CPR while he or she 1. Turns on the AED 2. attaches the pads 3. Plugs in the pads Now that the AED is turned on with the pads attached and plugged in, do you A. immediately stop chest compressions while it analyzes the heart's rhythm OR B. do not stop CPR until the AED prompt TELLS you "analyzing heart rhythm. Do not touch the patient." I understand that by touching the patient while it is analyzing, you can interfere with the AED's analyzing the heart rhythm. There is about a 5-10 second gap after you plug in the pads before the AED prompts you to not touch the patient, so I am looking for clarification when exactly you should stop touching the patient in this case.
  2. The company i work for doesn't allow bls to carry a pulse ox or even a AED, something seems really wrong about this considering they do back up the 911 system contracts, plus do general transports across state...
  3. Hey everyone, I have to apologize for not coming around more often but I have been a little distracted with school and stuff. I am going to travel by air and I am wondering if anyone knows if I can travel with a AED in my carry on bag. I really would hate to put it in my checked luggage. I couple of times things have been stolen from my checked luggage and I would really hate to loose my AED. I called the airline and they really are not sure if I can travel with it either in checked baggage or otherwise mainly because they didn't know what it is. I don't know why I would bother with them when my expert EMTCITY buddies are sure to know the answer. I really do miss you guys, I guess this just gives me a good excuse to start a thread!
  4. Hello everyone, I am a member of a student team of engineers designing an automatic, portable CPR machine. This device could be positioned in public areas (similar to AEDs) and could be attached to patients, freeing medical personell to simultaneously move patients or tend other injuries. We really need to prioritize design characteristics (portability, adjustability, etc.), but without field medical experience, we're a bit in the dark! Would you be able to give us a hand by ranking the following CPR machine characteristics (in terms of importance) on a scale of 1-10? Thank you so much! If you have any other thoughts, we'd love to hear those as well! Form/Enclosure: Size - Weight - Appearance - Few components - Comfort (for patient and operator) - Adjustability to different body types - Operation: How fast it can by moved/applied - Simplicity of use - Ability to move patient while in use - Ability to monitor patient condition - Ability to automatically adjust to patient status - User Interface: Communication of instructions - Ability to manually adjust rate/force of chest compression, etc. - Ability to interface with ambulances, other medical equipment - Other: Weather resistance - Theft deterrence - Low maintenance required - Battery life -
  5. So we studied how use defibrillators today. After class I thought it was kinda funny that we're only given a lousy shaving razor to shave the patient before applying the pads. I mean, what if he's really really hairy and all you got in this lousy shaving razor? it's gonna take forever before you can apply the pads. Shouldn't every defibrillator include a more serious razor blade? Maybe cold wax strips?
