AED Suppliers (AED Defibrillator Machines)

When shopping for AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) most go to a web search engine like Google, Yahoo, or Bing.  The results of the searches might be surprising in that it is fast becoming a pretty crowded marketplace.  There are CPR training centers dabbling in AED sales and there are safety shops that might carry a few AEDs in addition to thousands of safety items.  There are large suppliers who carry professional defibrillators geared for Ambulance Companies and ALCS.  There are vendors who sell CPR goods like manikins, masks and first supplies who also participate in the AED market.

For the consumer who’s looking for AEDs for their corporate workplace, place of worship, school or government entity it can all be quite overwhelming.  Which AED is the best?  Which type fits the budget?  What’s the difference between the vendors and the AED machines?

AED Prices, Safety, and Liability

Why do some small businesses (and medium ones too) not have workplace AEDs (Defibrillators) to protect their employees, customers and visitors?  In short, it’s usually a misperception or lack of understanding about one of three concerns:  the cost of AEDs, safety features of AEDs, or liability fears.  Let’s take a close look at these.The

A.  Affordability of AEDs.  Granted when AEDs first became available their average cost was much higher but like with most technology products the price has gone down.  Partly due to advancement in technology, market competition, broadening markets, and savvy consumers AEDs have become more affordable than you might think.  It is not uncommon to find a more affordable AED machine model for $1000 or so and a model rich with features for about $1600.

B.  Safety of AEDs. One of the greatest fears of customers is that a mistake might be made with an Automated External Defibrillator that results in a healthy person being harmed or even killed.  If this concern is yours you’ll be reassured that this simply can’t happy with an FDA-approved AED.  Once the two electrodes are placed on a patient’s chest the AED is able to analyze their heart rhythm.  The sophisticated algorithm within the device interprets the ECG to determine if a shock is needed.  For more on how to use an AED read more here.

C.  Liability and Legal Risk. There’s no doubt that in the U.S. legal climate individuals, businesses and government entities are cautious about being sued.  It’s important to note that AED buyer’s and users have legal protection.  State Good Samaritan Laws offer legal protection when a rescue is attempted with good intent.  Manufacturer Indemnification Policies offer huge financial protection in the event of an AED product failure.  The truth is the best way to avoid being sued in the event of a cardiac arrest death is to invest in AEDs & CPR/AED training and meet or exceed the “standard of care” in your industry.

Workplace Safety & Defibrillators

U.S. Companies should be proud of their safety initiatives and the heightened consciousness towards making workplaces “heart-safe” environments.  With AED or public defibrillator programs implemented these corporations are able protect their employees, customers and visited from sudden cardiac arrest death.  At the same time, savvy safety teams, risk managers and human resources departments realize that by implementing such programs they are also mitigating risk.

As professionals in the industry, we are often asked about the legal ramifications of placing AEDs in facilities and vehicles.  Some are concerned that they can be sued for having AEDs if a save attempt is not successful.  Most professionals agree that with improved Good Samaritan Laws, modified indemnification policies and comprehensive program management offerings (with Medical Oversight and asset tracking) the protection of the law is quite good.  On the other hand those organizations that have not yet invested in AEDs are exposed to risk.  If companies don’t keep up with “standard of care” within their segment they can certainly be opened to the threat of legal ramifications.

Beyond the discussion about liability, deploying life-saving AED devices is certainly the right thing to do.  In settings with ample AEDs, CPR-trained responders and a well-designed program survival rates have been shown to exceed 50% versus the bleak national averages of just 5% or less.

Furthermore, AEDs are becoming more affordable and even easier to use.  AED costs for corporations are down significantly with an average price of about $1500.  Large corporate deployments with bulk discounts applied can sometimes drive the price down to less than $1000 per AED.  The AED manufacturers have done a remarkable job enhancing device usability with ease-of-use features that make the rescue easier.  Watch a demonstration or video about AEDs and you’ll quickly learn that the voice prompts and visual prompts make saving a life more simple than you might imagine.

AED One-Stop Shop has an approach which is very consultative.  We arm our customers with facts and trends and much, much more to help them decide on whether to invest in AEDs.  Beyond that, we help chose the right device type and complementary offerings like CPR and program management.  This customer-oriented philosophy is helping to make AED One-Stop Shop one of the very fastest growing brands in the industry.  Email us at Sales@AEDOneStopShop.com and we’ll help you to implement a workplace AED program.
