We have it - barely use it- the meds have to be reordered when they expires and it gets expensive but where i live its mandatory. We all take CPR courses which include use of the defibrillator - once in 2 years. In the case of an emergency- we call an ambulance and just do regular CPR . We have oxygen tanks and suction machines on every unit...
