PROGRAM GOAL

State the goal of your AED program.

“The goal of your program is to increase the rate of survival of anyone who has suffered from sudden cardiac arrest.”

3 minutes is optimal and 5 minutes is acceptable.

For every minute without CPR and defibrillation, the odds of survival decrease 7-10%.

Each school district should designate an individual within their district to supervise the AED program.

In a small school district it may be the superintendent or the athletic director/head football coach.

EMS COORDINATION

Notification of the local EMS is required by Texas Law.

HB 580 from the 76th Legislature, Section 779.005 states that: When a person or entity acquires an automated external defibrillator, the person or entity shall notify the local EMS provider of the existence, location, and type of AED.

The location of AEDs to the EMS is imperative in the event of EMS activation. The dispatcher may be able to inform the 911 caller the location of an AED in the event the person making the call does not know.

placement of aeds
PLACEMENT OF AEDs

The program coordinator and campus coordinator should conduct a facility review to determine the ideal location for each AED.

Many AED sales representatives will assist with this process.

Ideally, each athletic trainer should have a personal AED to accompany them at every event.

Effective AED programs utilize a 3 minute response time as a guideline in determining the placement of their units.

Determine if the AED will be secured or unsecured, i.e. wall mount cabinet, nurses office, etc.

Ideally, an AED should not be in a secured location.

maintenance program
MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

Dailey, monthly, and annual checks are required for AED units.

All AED units have their own specific maintenance requirements.

HB 580, Section 779.003 requires that all units are maintained and tested according to the manufacturers requirements.

Each campus coordinator should have a copy of the manufacturers maintenance procedure.

At the end of each school year the following should be performed:

  • Forward monthly checklist to program coordinator
  • Forward training records to program coordinator
  • Forward annual checklist to program coordinator
responder training
RESPONDER TRAINING

Who will be trained?

Every person designated by the UIL as an extracurricular sponsor whom is required to be trained in first aid/CPR.

Who will provide the training?

AHA, American Red Cross, etc. TSDHS approved provider.

Most large districts will have their own certified first aid/CPR/AED trainers.

Responders should be trained on units similar to those procured by their employer.

emergency action plan
EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN
