ED Muskoka Physicians - Living the Dream

new deb trials

As you may know we are in the process of trialing equipment to determine a new hospital standard for Defibrillation Equipment. Some of our current equipment with Philips is at end of life and Philips no longer has replacement equipment that is Health Canada approved at this time. As such we will be evaluating two alternate vendors for this equipment, Zoll and Physio Controls.

I was asked to share this one re new defibs that are coming to trial….

“Next steps in this process is to have a demonstration day set up at each site for each of these vendors to demonstrate their equipment and allow staff an opportunity to try this out and ask any questions they may have. Each vendor will be on site for one day and will visit all areas at various times throughout the day to try and catch as many staff as possible. I will distribute an evaluation form prior to these demos which staff can use to record their thoughts. If further days are required we can arrange this at a later time.

Also during these days they will be holding a 90 minute formal presentation type session at each site where they can discuss some of the more advanced features of these units and run through a mock code blue scenario for the group. These presentations will be open to all , I will send a meeting invite with times and room locations out shortly. Please share this with any interested staff or Physicians.
