Don't overlook the crucial step of chest prep with an AED or defibrillator - save a life with our kit.

Preparing a chest for defibrillation is a critical step in ensuring the effectiveness of the procedure. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  1. Assess the Situation: Ensure the environment is safe and the patient is unresponsive. Call for emergency medical help if it hasn't been done already.

  2. Expose the Chest: Quickly but carefully remove any clothing covering the chest. Use scissors if necessary to cut through fabric.

  3. Position the Patient: Lay the patient on a firm, flat surface to facilitate effective chest compressions and defibrillation.

  4. Check for Jewelry and Accessories: Remove any necklaces, bras, or metal objects from the chest area to prevent burns and ensure proper pad adhesion.

  5. Dry the Chest: If the chest is wet or sweaty, dry it thoroughly using a towel or gauze. Moisture can interfere with pad adhesion and the effectiveness of the shock.

  6. Shave if Necessary: If the chest is excessively hairy, quickly shave the areas where the pads will be placed. Most defibrillator kits include a razor for this purpose. This ensures good contact between the skin and the pads.

  7. Attach the Defibrillator Pads: Follow the instructions on the defibrillator or pads. Place one pad on the upper right side of the chest, just below the collarbone, and the other on the lower left side of the chest, a few inches below the armpit.

  8. Ensure Proper Pad Placement: Make sure the pads are firmly attached to the skin. They should have good contact without any air bubbles underneath.

  9. Follow Defibrillator Prompts: Turn on the defibrillator and follow its audio and visual prompts. Stand clear of the patient when delivering the shock.

By following these steps, you help ensure the defibrillator works effectively, increasing the chances of a successful resuscitation.
