The Australian Resuscitation Council is a voluntary coordinating body which represents all major groups involved in the teaching and practice of resuscitation. The Australian Resuscitation Council is sponsored by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.
The Australian Resuscitation Council produces Guidelines to meet its objectives in fostering uniformity and simplicity in resuscitation techniques and terminology. Guidelines are produced after consideration of all available scientific and published material and are only issued after acceptance by all member organisations. This does not imply, however, that methods other than those recommended are ineffective.
We would recommend that our customers look at the relevant Resuscitation Council Guidelines and choose a defibrillator that best meets the recommendations contained within the guidelines.
