The fire service in Dublin, Ireland, put external automated defibs on all our ambulances recently and hope to add them to our front line fire apliances soon. All of our 800+ firefighters/emt-bs where trained to our protocal which allows 12 shocks to be delivered in total, in blocks of three.We have had great sucess on the road with the machines, our only problem now is getting the powers to be, to train us up to emt-a which would allow us to intubate and deliver cardiac drugs down the tube.
I wish you lots of sucess with your training and even more sucess on the road.
Stay safe, Mark aka Hylo.
