Keith Murray, owner of The CPR School in Jupiter Florida adds, "The AED that you purchase might save your life. Make certain that everyone who as access to the AED has been properly trained by a skilled instructor that has actually used CPR and AEDs in real life saving situations.” Murray, a Florida firefighter EMT recently used an AED in the Atlanta airport to save a travelers life. The victim went into cardiac arrest, one of the passengers started CPR compressions, another rescue breathing, and Murray turned on the Medtronic Physio-Control LIFEPAK® CR Plus AED, applied the electrode pads to the patients chest, pressed the shock button and the AED worked. The patient started breathing and is alive today because of the quick use of an AED.
What is an AED? An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient. The AED is able to treat the patient by application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm. AEDs are designed to be simple so that anyone can use one. Proper use of an AED is taught in our CPR first aid classes.

Why do you need an AED program in the workplace? Sudden Cardiac Arrest accounts for 13% of on-the-job fatalities. OSHA has indicated the importance of AEDs and encourages the use of these live saving devices in the workplace. With the cost of AEDs starting at just $1,200 it’s a small price to pay for saving a life.
What does OSHA indicate about AEDs? "Because the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) can save the lives of workers who experience cardiac arrest while on the job, OSHA today encouraged employers to consider making this equipment available in their workplace." - US Department of Labor, Office of Public Affairs, Dec. 17, 2001
What about Federal Laws regarding the use of AEDs? The Cardiac Arrest Survival Act (CASA) of 2000 is our nation's first legislation recognizing the lifesaving role played by automated external defibrillators (AEDs). The law highlights the need to make AEDs accessible to anyone who has had proper training, not just professional medical personnel. The law protects trained AED users from liability, and also protects any person who has maintained the device, provided training, tested the device or acquired it. The law also augments existing state "Good Samaritan" laws by ensuring federal liability protection for trained users and purchasers of AEDs.
Liability - Am I safer with or without an AED? Florida is a very litigious state. Attorneys are advertising everywhere and many people view filing lawsuits as hitting the lottery. But not having an AED may put you at greater than owning one. The increasing number of AEDs in public places, coupled with the fact that AEDS dramatically increase cardiac arrest survival rates may establish a standard of care. If the property down the road has an AED program in place to save lives, why doesn’t your property offer the same protection?
Signed into federal law in 2000, the Cardiac Arrest Survival Act (CASA) provides limited immunity from civil liability for those who acquire or use an AED if the state has not otherwise granted immunity for such persons under other statutes.
Is my business or association required to have an AED on property? Ordinances and laws vary by city and state. In Florida Coral Gables, Coral Springs, Davie, Plantation, Sunrise and Parkland all have an AED ordinance requiring Automated External Defibrillators (AED) in many businesses. Miami Beach Florida is considering adopting a simial AED ordinance. These ordinances typically require AEDs in restaurants, hotels, health clubs, movie theaters and retail stores. Ordinances and laws vary by location and business.
Will my health insurance cover an Automated External Defibrillator or AED? There are some medical conditions that may meet the criteria for medical necessity for an Automated External Defibrillator. If a physician determines that the Automated External Defibrillator is medically necessary, a letter written on the physician’s letterhead may help an insurance carrier or other payer to understand the patient’s situation. Please note - Due to the wide range of health insurance policies and patient conditions, The CPR School cannot guarantee that an insurance company will cover or pay for your AED.
Do you sell AEDs wholesale or retail? The majority of our customers are retail buyers, purchasing 1-6 AEDs at a time. We do however offer discounts to resellers and large volume buyers.
We have an AED that does not work. Can you repair it? Yes, many of our customers have AEDs that are no longer working properly. Often times we are able to upgrade the software, replace the old batteries and AED electrode pads and get them back into service. If the AED requires additional work, we will contact the manufacturer to see if the problem is covered under warranty. If you have an AED that is not working, call us. You have nothing to lose.
We have several older AEDs and want to trade them in. Do you accept trade ins? Yes, we will take your old AEDs on trade for new ones. Please call us to discuss.
Will you train our staff and members how to use an AED with CPR? Yes, The CPR School offers professional American Heart Association ASHI & ECSI group CPR, First Aid and AED training certification classes at your Florida location.

What's the big deal - an AED is an AED right? All AEDs have the potential to save lives. All AEDs have their strengths and their weaknesses. Some AEDs are more expensive than others yet some cost less to maintain. Some AEDs are rated better for dust and water (IP rating) and will be more dependable in certain environments. I believe using the right tool for the right job applies to AEDs as well. Call us to find out which AED is best for your Florida business.
What is the danger of purchasing the wrong AED? If you or someone you know purchased an Access CardioSystems AED you already know the answer. Access CardioSystems discontinued manufacturing and marketing ALL models of its AEDs and discontinued supporting its AEDs. All consumable components (specifically disposable battery packs and electrode sets) used with its AEDs are no longer available, these AEDs cannot be serviced or repaired. These AEDs are now unusable junk. Imagine the purchasing agent that decided to buy this brand for his or her company only to find out they bought worthless safety equipment with no value. Let us help you select the right AED for your Florida business.
