AED Solutions

Is your staff ready to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) emergency with an on-site automated external defibrillator (AED)? Making AED-related decisions can be challenging and time-consuming. Purchasing an AED is only one step in implementing a successful program.

  • Is your AED compliant with local, state, and federal laws?
  • Is the device properly installed and accessible within three to five minutes from anywhere a victim may collapse?
  • Have you checked if the device is ready to use?
  • When do the pads and battery expire?
  • Is your response team up-to-date on CPR / AED training?
  • How will you manage ongoing maintenance to ensure compliance?
  • Who will track, replace, and update expired AED accessories and training?
  • What do you do after an SCA event occurs?

Anyone Can Suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)

Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors. Being well-equipped with an emergency response plan that includes proactive program management, training, service and support could help save a life.

Device Prescription

All of the AEDs available from ZEE Medical require a medical prescription from an overseeing physician. Automated External Defibrillator - Zee Medical

Medical Direction & Program Management

A successful AED program includes the involvement of an overseeing physician to ensure compliance with state Good Samaritan requirements. Good Samaritan laws are designed to help protect your organization from liability when you maintain an AED on site, and if the AED is ever used.

AED Response Protocols

Every AED program should include a written response plan of action in the instance of an emergency. This document should outline the policies and procedures of owning and deploying your AED(s).

CPR / AED Training Responders

Your AED is only as useful as the team employed to use the device in the event of an emergency. In order to maintain a successful AED program, you must have a volunteer response team that can administer CPR and use the AED.

State / Local EMS or 9-1-1 Dispatch Notification

Some states require you to notify local EMS or 9-1-1 dispatch when you install an AED at your facility. This will help professional emergency personnel determine their appropriate response plan when an emergency occurs at your site.

Regular Maintenance Checks

An AED is only beneficial if it's ready to use in the event of an emergency. To remain compliant with most local, state, and federal laws, you must regularly inspect your AED(s) to make sure they are operational.
