Maybe what we need is for every piece of kit (the defibs, in this case) to be able to report back using SMS. In other words, to have a cell-phone built in.

But why stop there; perhaps we should make that a smartphone, complete with IP address! smile

Then the defibs could exchange selfies with the blood refrigerator, or whatever.

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
