You have an AED. Now what?
If you’ve just purchased an AED, are you wondering what to do next? The steps to implement an effective AED program can take time. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! Follow these simple steps…
Get a site assessment
Chances of survival decrease by 10% per minute, so you’ll want to make sure you have enough time to retrieve your AED and treat the victim inside of 3 minutes. Get a site assessment to make sure you can meet this guideline!
Ensure your staff can perform responsibly during an emergency
Maintain your program
AEDs should be checked on a monthly basis and supplies need to be kept up to date. An AED management program will help track supplies, send inspection reminders, and much more.
Know the requirements
