    General information about defibrillators and first aid equipment

    A defibrillator, also called an automatic external defibrillator (AED), is a medical device that delivers an electric shock to the heart during cardiac arrest. It restores normal heart rhythm by analyzing heart activity through electrodes attached to the patient's chest. If a dangerous cardiac arrhythmia is detected, the defibrillator delivers a controlled shock to restore normal rhythm. This increases the chance of survival by restoring blood circulation and oxygen supply to vital organs. Defibrillators are easy to use and they also provide voice instructions for quick first aid in emergency situations.

    A defibrillator can cost anywhere from NOK 8,000 to NOK 25-30,000. There are many different varieties and prices vary widely. However, it is recommended to buy a defibrillator that costs between NOK 15,000 and NOK 20,000, instead of the cheapest option. A cheaper defibrillator is not always as good as the more expensive alternatives. Make sure it includes the battery and electrodes, as defibrillators may be sold without these. It can cost several thousand Norwegian kroners extra to buy.

    In addition, there are maintenance costs such as changing batteries and electrodes after they have been used or expired. Possibly a bag and cabinet for storage if desired. This equates to an expensive one-off price and several expensive purchases over the years. If you want to own and maintain it yourself, this is a good choice, but there are several companies, including us, that offer rent with a service plan where everything is included.

    A defibrillator can save lives by delivering an electric shock during cardiac arrest. It restores normal heart function by analyzing heart activity and identifying dangerous arrhythmias. By delivering a controlled shock, the defibrillator can "reset" the heart to normal rhythm, restoring blood circulation and oxygen supply to vital organs. Early use of a defibrillator significantly increases the chances of survival, and combined with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and professional medical intervention, it can prevent serious injuries and save lives. Defibrillators are therefore essential for quick and effective first aid in emergency situations.

    The authorities recommend that defibrillators should be installed in public places with high activity, as well as in workplaces and schools. Companies have a requirement for HSE courses.

    However, we believe that defibrillators should be more widespread, not just in places with high traffic. People and businesses belonging to the countryside can experience an emergency just like in a public place, but for them an ambulance will take much longer to arrive. The ambulance can take anywhere from 10 minutes to half an hour, depending on where you are. When it comes to cardiac arrest, every minute counts. With no defibrillator or ambulance, the chance of the person surviving is small. That's why we fight to make defibrillators more accessible everywhere.

    A manual defibrillator requires a trained professional to adjust the energy level of the shock and monitor the heart's activity. An automated defibrillator automatically analyzes the cardiac arrhythmia and provides shock instructions. It can be used by people without medical training. Defibrillators are usually available in public places for quick first aid, while manual defibrillators are used in medical settings.

    All our defibrillators are semi- or fully automatic.

    Early use of a defibrillator significantly increases the chances of survival in cardiac arrest. For every minute that goes by without treatment, the survival rate drops drastically. The defibrillator can quickly restore normal heart rhythm, restore blood circulation and oxygen supply to vital organs. The sooner the defibrillator is used, the greater the chance that the person will survive without permanent neurological damage.

    People without a medical background can use a defibrillator effectively by following simple instructions. Defibrillators provide clear verbal and visual instructions that guide the entire process. The user places the electrodes on the patient's chest, follows the instructions for analysis and shock delivery. Defibrillators are designed to determine whether a shock is necessary and provide a safe and easy way for even inexperienced people to manage cardiac arrest at critical moments.

    Modern defibrillators have several safety measures to ensure safe and effective use. This includes voice and visual guidance that helps the user through the process. AEDs analyze heart activity to determine if a shock is necessary, and they provide instructions to avoid body contact during shocks. The built-in safety systems ensure that the shock is controlled and adapted to the patient's needs, which helps to minimize the risk and increase the chances of successful treatment.

    Health organizations and the authorities should emphasize the importance of defibrillators through information campaigns and courses. Training in basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of defibrillators should be offered to all kinds of groups of people, from school students to businesses to individuals. Closer collaboration with health organizations and local authorities can help to integrate defibrillators as an integral part of community preparedness. Political parties and people with the right to vote should fight for more accessible defibrillators and support campaigns that promote this.

    Yes! It is called the defibrillator register and is run by the health authorities. You can find an overview of registered defibrillators on the 113.no website or by downloading the Hjelp 113 app on your mobile or tablet.

    Anyone who owns or rents a defibrillator is encouraged to register it. It helps the health authorities find the nearest defibrillator. It is not required to register defibrillators.

    Maintenance and regular testing of defibrillators is essential. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for routine checks of electrodes, battery and general functionality. Check that the device is in good condition, has sufficient battery life and is placed in an accessible location. Regular training and drills for staff or community members who may use the AED also help ensure that it is ready for use in an emergency. This should be done approx. every other year.

    With a service agreement, all this is done for you. We monitor your defibrillator and change the battery, electrodes and machine when necessary.

    About us and our products

    A defibrillator rental agreement with us is NOK 490 with a 60-month commitment period, NOK 590 with 36 months and NOK 790 for 24 months (an establishment fee of NOK 1,990 is added for the latter). We also have regular campaigns with offers for rent and packages with other products. These prices are fixed with the exception of individual offers.

    You can contact customer service at any time if you are interested in a purchase or rental plan with us. We will be happy to provide you with an individualized offer for your specific circumstances. Call us on 815 36 553 or contact us by email: post@osnoridc.com.

    A defibrillator rental plan comes with:

    1. CardiAid or Mindray defibrillator
    2. Free heart and lung rescue course (CPR). Whether this is taken on location or online depends on where you or your company is located. Get in touch for more information regarding this
    3. An AED (defibrillator) sign that you can hang up
    4. A service plan for your defibrillator (replacement of battery and electrodes, other)
    5. Free replacement of the defibrillator if it has been used or has other faults
    6. If there is anything else, our customer service is always ready to help you

    Yes, there is a lbinding period on lease agreements. This will be described in the contract. Binding period varies with the rental plan you have chosen.

    If it is less than 14 days since you entered into the agreement, you can cancel the purchase by sending us an e-mail at post@osnoric.com with a cancellation form. If you have already received the product, you must pack and ship it yourself. We can send you a label with our address (you have to pay the postage yourself). The cancellation period is extended to 12 months if the seller has not informed you about the right of cancellation or given you a right of cancellation form. Contact us for a form if this is the case. The period of 14 days starts to run again when you have received the form. Read more about your rights in our terms and conditions.

    Each individual owner or renter must choose to register on 133's website. Folkestarteren does not have the option of registering for customers. This is because only the customer knows where they have the defibrillator placed at any time, about their own opening hours and can physically check the machine if necessary. However, we encourage all customers to register, but it is not something they have to do.

    All our customers are offered a free course in the use of defibrillators and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), where we can either travel to the customer's home or business, or it can be taken online. We recommend completing the course, but we cannot demand it, and there is no longer a requirement for it in Norway. In the past there was a requirement for a course, but the practice was stopped as it was better for someone to try to use a defibrillator, rather than to do nothing in connection with a cardiac arrest. Defibrillators on the market today are much better than before as they come with instructions. For companies, on the other hand, HSE is a requirement. It is important that the knowledge exists in the company, even if they have invested in defibrillators or not.
