What is an AED and how does it work? An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is a portable, battery operated electronic device about the size of a laptop computer. The AED automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a victim and is able to treat the patient by an electrical shock which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm. AEDs are designed to be simple so that anyone can use one. So simple that I often start my classes by selecting someone from the class that has never seen an AED and I ask them to demonstrate how to use an AED by following the AEDs voice instructions. To date, the youngest person to effectively demonstrate the AED in one of my classes was 9 years old.
Why should I buy an AED? In June of 2009 Michael Jackson died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in June of 2008 Tim Russert of NBC’s Meet The Press also died from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest claims about 340,000 lives each year – or around 930 every day in the United States. Sudden cardiac arrest, which is the leading cause of death in the United States kills more people than breast cancer, lung cancer, and AIDS combined. Currently 95 percent of all cardiac arrest victims die
How much does an Automated External Defibrillator cost? AEDs or Automated External Defibrillators range in price from about $1200 up to about $1700. In addition to the AED you will also want a wall mounted alarmed cabinet to prevent theft and to make the AED easy to find in the event of an emergency. AED cabinets range from $175 to $400 depending on the quality of the cabinet. Buying a used AED or buying an AED from a salesperson that has little or no knowledge about the AED is never a good idea. These are life saving devices – if they fail, your patient dies. Call 877-6-AED-CPR (877-623-3277) to discuss our AED Packages.

Who should purchase an AED? Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are becoming more popular and can be found in many public places. FAA regulations require commercial aircraft that fly passengers to have AEDs on board. In Florida dental offices are required by law to have AEDs as are public schools. You will also find AEDs in many restaurants, health clubs, hotels, casinos, cruise ships, sports stadiums, malls, condo and homeowners associations, movie theaters and a variety of other locations.
What are the benefits of owning an AED? Without the AED the chances of surviving Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) outside of a hospital setting are very small – less than 5%. However, if the AED is applied to the victim quickly their odds increase to about 70% - 90%.
Keith Murray, owner of The CPR School in Jupiter Florida adds, "The AED that you purchase might save your life. Make certain that everyone who as access to the AED has been properly trained by a skilled instructor that has actually used CPR and AEDs in real life saving situations.” Murray, a Florida firefighter EMT recently used an AED in the Atlanta airport to save a travelers life. The victim went into cardiac arrest, one of the passengers started CPR compressions, another rescue breathing, and Murray turned on the Medtronic Physio Control AED, applied the pads to the patients chest, pressed the shock button and it worked. The patient started breathing and is alive today because of the quick use of an AED.
