Buy HeartStart AED Machine

When it comes to having an AED in the workplace, some businesses may be required to have one by law, but there are benefits to having one at a company even if it isn’t required. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the American Heart Association, and around 10,000 of these occur while the victim is at work. At AED One-Stop Shop, we carry a variety of AEDs with different advantages depending on the needs of your workplace. Browse our products to discover what AEDs we carry and what will best work for your business.

Allows for Fast Medical Intervention

Cardiac arrest is one of the most common medical emergencies, so having an AED on-site has the potential to provide life-saving medical intervention. For every minute that passes after cardiac arrest starts with no intervention, chances of survival drop by 7%-10%. However, having an AED at the workplace in the event of a cardiac arrest can help improve the chances of survival. Using one may seem intimidating, but it’s important to remember that using one incorrectly will not cause damage to the victim. Given the life-saving capacity of AEDs, it can be beneficial to have one on hand in case of an emergency.

Easy to Use

Fortunately, many AEDs are easy to use. The average AED will assist the user through visual and audio cues. Some AEDs, such as the ZOLL AED 3, will give real-time feedback to provide instructions to coach users on what should be done. Other AEDs, like the Heartsine Samaritan 450P AED, offer real-time CPR coaching without the need for additional accessories. Many of our other products offer features such as Wi-Fi connectivity, and multilingual instructions, and are user-friendly, even for beginners. We also offer additional accessories to all our products to ensure that your AED is ready to be used at any time.
