Oklahoma AED Law - House Bill 1190 (HB 1190)

The State of Oklahoma has enacted an AED law to protect individuals and organizations that own an AED.  The Oklahoma AED Law states the following:

"B. 1. In order to qualify under the provisions of this section, a person or entity acquiring an automated external defibrillator shall comply with the following provisions:

a. ensure that expected defibrillator users receive reasonable training in defibrillator use and cardiopulmonary resuscitation by a national or state-approved course and instructor. The user of a defibrillator shall possess demonstrated proficiency in defibrillator use and cardiopulmonary resuscitation,

b. ensure that the defibrillator is maintained and tested according to the manufacture's operational guidelines,

c. enlist medical direction by a licensed physician in the use of the defibrillator and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and

d. a person or entity in possession of a defibrillator shall notify the ambulance service provider that serves the area where the person or entity is located.

2. Upon the use of an automated external defibrillator in an emergency care situation, the person or entity to whom the device is registered must immediately notify emergency authorities of its use."

Oklahoma requires an organization to seek medical direction over the AED Program to ensure that the organization is compliant with state law when it comes to owning an AED and training the organization's staff.  The AED must be maintained according to the manufacture's guidelines.  Part of the maintenance includes replacing the pads and batteries according to the expiration date.
