External Defibrillation Devices, Resuscitation and Simulation Manikins and Related Accessories
This framework starts on 1 August 2019, runs for 48 months and ends on 31 July 2023. This includes a 24 months extension.
Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) are portable electronic devices that give clear visual and audible step-by-step guidance in a sudden cardiac arrest situation. If needed, it can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. These are widely used within the community.
There are two types of a defibrillator, the Manual Override (used by the emergency services) and the Manual Defibrillator (used by medical professionals in an ambulance or hospital environments).
The procedure involves the delivery of an electric shock to the heart which enables the heart muscles to reestablish normal rhythm.
We are pleased to offer a range of products and services and have a team on hand to support you throughout the procurement process. Services include:
- Arranging site visits
