Washington state law requires that a licensed physician or osteopath provide medical direction to a person or entity purchasing an AED. The Medical Director will help to develop instructions for your AED program to ensure that they are appropriate for your agency and are in accordance with American Heart Association Guidelines. The Medical Director will provide oversight of these instructions to ensure ongoing compliance, assure that users receive appropriate training, and that the AED is in a location to make your AED program a success.
If the AED will be located within Seattle city limits, medical direction can be provided by Dr. Michael Copass. If the AED will be located in King County but outside of Seattle city limits, medical direction can be provided by Dr. Mickey Eisenberg, or you can name a physician of your choice.
Please contact the King County AED Coordinator at 206-263-8567 for more information.
