Salou. Costa Dorada. 15 August 2018. Salou has since August 13 with the first defibrillator installed on public roads in the municipality. It has been located in the Plaza de Francesc Germà, popularly known as the Plaza de la Fuente Luminosa. The new DEA point has been located in a known location, centrally located and easy to locate, with the intention of allowing quick access in case its use is needed to help those who suffer a serious health problem.

After its installation, a demonstration of its operation was carried out by the company that offers the service. The point is in a place with video surveillance to prevent vandalism in the device and it is automatically connected to the 112 emergency phone and local police to act in the fastest way in case of cardiorespiratory arrest.

The Mayor, Pere Granados, accompanied by the Councilor for Citizen Security and Civil Protection, David González, and the Councilor for Health, Martina Fourrier, visited the new site. The mayor stressed that "it is the first that we install on the public highway, but they also have other public municipal facilities and especially on all the beaches of the municipality - except for some small cove - where there is a large influx of people and our intention is that they go for more because we want Salou to be a cardioprotected city ". For his part, Councilman David González, explained that the purchase of 4 new mobile defibrillators for patrol cars of the Local Police is already underway; In addition, one will soon be added to the Cap Salou area and from the Civil Protection area a study will begin to expand the number of outdoor locations where an AED device can be found.

The company Neosalus, has been responsible for developing the map of Salou as a protected cardio city and also has a CARDIONLIVE APP that allows detecting the place where the defibrillators are installed and the distance in which the person requesting it is located. , in addition to indicating the direction of how to get to the nearest defibrillation point. This can be downloaded for free to both the APP Store and Playstories.

The other DEA devices currently installed

Currently, Salou has: three devices for municipal sports facilities (municipal pavilion and municipal swimming pool, the Cap Salou pavilion and the municipal soccer field), two devices for police stations (mobile), an apparatus for the Municipal Market of Salou , and, finally, an apparatus for the Consistorial House and hall of the TAS, in addition to another one at the Salvage and Lifeguard point of the Levante beach, on the beaches of Salou.

Defibrillators are electronic devices that diagnose and treat cardiorespiratory arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation (the heart has an altered electrical activity that causes no mechanical effectiveness) or a pulseless ventricular tachycardia (in which there is electrical activity and in this case blood pumping is ineffective).

This device generates an electric shock that applied before the ten minutes of cardiorespiratory arrest can reactivate the cardiac function. These devices, due to their simplicity, allow lifeguards or inexperienced people to be able to use them successfully, since it facilitates verbal indications.
