New Mexico AED Law - House Bill 375 (HB 375)

The State of New Mexico has enacted an AED Law that requires AED owners to follow certain guidelines to avoid liability of owning an AED.  The New Mexico AED Law states the following:

"Section 4. [NEW MATERIAL] PROTECTION OF PUBLIC SAFETY.--A person who acquires an AED shall ensure that:

A. a physician medical director oversees all aspects of the defibrillation program, including training, emergency medical services coordination, protocol approval, AED deployment strategies and other program requirements, and that the physician medical director provides overall quality assurance and reviews each case in which the AED is used by the program;

B. the trained targeted responder receives appropriate training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and in the use of an AED by a nationally recognized course in cardiopulmonary response and AED use approved by the department or other training programs authorized by the department;

C. the defibrillator is maintained and tested according to the manufacturer's guidelines;

D. any person who renders emergency care or treatment on a person in cardiac arrest by using an AED activates the emergency medical system as soon as possible, and reports any clinical use of the AED to the physician medical director;

E. the AED program is registered with the department; and

F. the local emergency medical services and local 911 agencies have been notified of the AED program."

New Mexico requires medical direction for an AED program to exist.  Medical Direction has a physician that oversees the AED program to ensure that the AED program is compliant with the law, the AED is being maintained, and the CPR/AED training program has been completed.  The placement of the AED program should be registered with the local EMS.
