Is my AED safe to touch? What if I accidentally shock someone or myself?

An AED will only deliver a shock if the electrode pads are applied and the AED detects a shockable heart rhythm in a patient. AED Superstore only sells FDA (Food and Drug Administration) cleared defibrillators, and as such they are designed so it’s impossible to accidentally shock yourself or someone else. To learn more about how the heart operates, what can go wrong, and the type of rhythms that an AED unit assesses, visit our resource center.
