Purchasing an automated external defibrillator (AED) is a major step toward protecting your organization, your customers, and the wider community. You can get the most out of your AED purchase by making sure the AED is easy to find in an emergency, letting people know that it’s available, showing staff how it works, and arranging for CPR and AED training by an authorized instructor. And Cardiac Science’s AED specialists can help.
