OXYGENCARE AIMS TO IMPROVE ACCESS TO LIFESAVING DEFIBS IN IRELAND

Jun 28, 2024 | Nationwide News

OxygenCare, a leading provider of lifesaving medical equipment and solutions, has announced a new partnership with Defibtech, a manufacturer of lifesaving resuscitation devices, to improve the availability of rescue-ready defibrillators in Ireland which could save lives.

Heart disease remains a leading cause of death in Ireland, with at least 9,000 deaths and 25,000 hospital admissions each year according to the HSE. The availability of functional defibrillators is crucial, and inadequate maintenance has rendered many devices non-functional, exacerbating the issue.

Conrad Wynne, Senior Product Specialist of Resuscitation at OxygenCare (pictured) said: “This partnership with Defibtech not only enhances our critical care offering but enables us to help ensure that AEDs across Ireland are both available and functional when people need them. Emergency situations arise all the time and every second counts in these situations, so having operational, life-saving technology is crucial.

“As a leading provider of emergency and resuscitation equipment, OxygenCare has extensive experience and a long-standing reputation in the Irish healthcare industry. The addition of Defibtech’s Lifeline AED (automated external defibrillator) greatly enhances its existing portfolio.”

Defibtech, a long-standing American manufacturer in medical technology, is dedicated to crafting dependable, affordable, and user-friendly products, empowering communities globally to respond to sudden cardiac arrest.

Joseph Mullally, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations at Defibtech, said that partnering with OxygenCare was a natural fit for Defibtech. “We have a shared mission to provide emergency medical technology and spread awareness which can save lives. We recognise that the true impact of our work lies not only in the accessibility of our products but also through knowledge and skills.”

Mullally added: “By combining our defibrillator products with support and service from OxygenCare we’re equipping organisations and communities across Ireland with the tools, knowledge and confidence to act decisively in the face of cardiac emergencies.”
