2 EMERGENCY AUTOMATIC EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS (AED) RESPONSE PROCEDURES Automated external defibrillators (AED) provide treatment for victims who experience sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). As recommended by the American Heart Association, AEDs can be used on persons who are at least one (1) year of age and display ALL the symptoms of cardiac arrest. Adult electrode AED pads are to be pre-connected to the AED for treatment of adults and children over eight (8) years of age or weighing over 55 lbs. Pediatric AED electrodes are also provided for treatment of children under age eight (8) or less than 55 lbs. NOTE: If an AED is not immediately available, perform CPR until AED arrives on the scene. CPR/AED EMERGENCY RESPONSE PROCEDURES -DURING SCHOOL HOURS STAFF ACTIONS 1. Call Notify principal 3. Follow universal precautions using gloves and ventilation mask, if available. 4. Provide immediate medical attention, if available, utilize trained staff to administer first aid and perform necessary life-sustaining measures (CPR/AED, etc.) until medical services arrives 5. Victim assessment: a. Open airway b. Check for breathing if not breathing, or if breathing is ineffective, give two (2) slow breaths. c. Check for signs of circulation such as pulse and coughing, or movement. d. If there are no signs of circulation, apply AED immediately. If AED is not immediately available, begin chest compressions and breathing (CPR) until AED arrives. e. If victim is under eight (8) years old or under 55 lbs), remove pre-connected adult defibrillation electrodes, connect Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes to the AED and proceed with treatment. Do not delay treatment to determine precise age or weight of child. If in doubt, defibrillate with pre-connected adult defibrillation electrodes. The AED PLUS recognizes and verbally indicates rescue as adult or pediatric based on whether the adult or pediatric electrode pads are connected. This helps prevent mistakes. Rescuers are less likely to deliver too little energy to an adult because pediatric pads are attached, or too much energy to a child because adult pads are attached. Rescuers can even switch pads in mid-rescue if they discover a mistake. f. Once the AED is activated follow the verbal protocol prompts. g. When applying electrode pads to victim s bare chest, shave or clip victim s chest hair only if it is so excessive as to prevent a good seal and wipe and dry chest only if dirty or wet. 6. The AED analyzes the heart rhythm and advises the operator if a shockable rhythm is detected. 7. If a shockable rhythm is detected, the AED charges to the appropriate energy level and advises the operator to deliver a shock. 8. If a student/staff member is transported to a medical facility, a staff member, when possible, should accompany and take emergency information. 9. Principal shall immediately notify the Superintendent of the incident. 10. After the incident, the staff member shall complete the AED (automatic external defibrillator) Treatment Incident Summary Form and submit it to the Superintendent no later than the next business day after AED treatment. *Refrain from using portable radios or cell phones within four (4) feet of victim while AED is evaluating heart rhythm. CPR/AED EMERGENCY RESPONSE DURING NON-SCHOOL HOURS 1. During non-school hours AED/CPR trained school staff MAY NOT be available to assist in the event of an emergency. 2. When a medical emergency occurs, CALL Anyone at the scene at his/her discretion may provide voluntary assistance to victims of medical emergencies including use of the AED. 4. The Adair County School System assumes no liability for rendering of care or use of the AED by the general public after normal school business hours 5. The public is encouraged to receive training and become certified in CPR/AED use. For information about classes scheduled for our area, call Jason Rector , EMS at or contact any other emergency management organization. Page 2 of 6

3 POST INCIDENT PROCEDURE 1. Anyone using a school AED shall complete the AED (automatic external defibrillator) Treatment Incident Summary Form and submit to the Superintendent the next business day after AED treatment. 2. The Superintendent/designee will forward a copy of the AED Treatment Incident Summary Form to the AED/District Health Coordinator who will forward a copy to the AED Medical Director. 3. After AED use, the AED/District Health Coordinator will download and provide data to the Medical Director the next business day after the emergency. 4. After use the AED will be cleaned and disinfected according to manufacturer guidelines. If contamination includes body fluids, the equipment shall be disinfected according to bloodborne pathogens procedures. 5. After AED use, electrode pads are to be replaced and reconnected to the device (electrode pads and CHARGE- PAK charging unit must be replaced in the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED). Contents of the resuscitation kit are to be replaced, if used. 6. Critical Event Stress debriefing will be conducted by the AED Program Coordinator/Medical Director. Page 3 of 6
