What should I do if I use my AED in a rescue?
After using your AED in a rescue, there are a number of steps you should take:
- Buy new AED electrode pads
- Check the AED’s battery life
- Potentially involving one of our medical directors to review the details of the event.
- Call our customer care department at (800) 544-0048 to learn more about the steps we recommend following after an AED is used and how we can help.
No matter the outcome of the event, you should be proud that you did everything you could to help prevent unnecessary death due to cardiac arrest. We sell AEDs, provide CPR training, and help manage AED programs to save lives, not so that AEDs just sit on the wall.
