During a monthly maintenance test performed by a safety professional a cardiac AED was found unresponsive. The Cardiac Science Powerheart AED G3 Plus has an operating Temperature of 32-122 degrees Fahrenheit. The unit had been stored in the safety representatives company vehicle during the month of December when temperatures dropped well below that mark for several days. The device stopped working and began beeping; an error message read that service was required.
Lessons Learned: Cardiac automated external defibrillators may not work, when needed, if left in extreme temperatures. Given the dangerous nature of our work, safety equipment should be kept in working condition at all times.
