Corporate Air Parts (CAPS), in business since 1983, recently signed a new agreement with Phillips Medical products that includes the sale and service of all HeartStart automatic external defribrillators (AEDs). Proper use of these life-saving devices will be incorporated into CAPS’s existing training programs, including Part 135.331 emergency crewmember training, hypoxia recognition and recovery and cabin service and AED/CPR/first aid training.
The HeartStart AEDs are specifically designed for trained or untrained responders by providing clear, easy-to-follow instructions. The units employ a series of comprehensive self tests to ensure readiness, using a visible status indicator to show when the device is ready for use. A highly accurate algorithm determines whether or not the patient’s current condition actually requires a shock.
