AED IP Ratings

AED IP Ratings

IP ratings, also known as ingress protection ratings, are a standard of measurement that shows the degree of environmental protection an electronic device has from dust and water. The higher the IP number, the greater the dust and water protection an AED will have. Learn more about ratings–and what to look for in the chart below.

Chart shows a graphical representation of the size of dust or solid object particles the AED is protected against, as well as the types of moisture it can withstand. Note If an AED has an X rather than a number, it means that the defibrillator has not been rated in that category.

To view IP ratings for each AED, simply go to the product comparison feature on our homepage.

Durability (Dust/Water Resistance)
AEDs with high resistance to dust and water damage. Perfect for outdoors, areas near water, vehicles, and industrial settings.
CPR Feedback
AEDs with audible and/or visual feedback on the quality of compressions given during CPR. Great for untrained responders or those with limited training.

Pediatric Method
A pediatric key or button eliminates the need to purchase pediatric pads.

Remote Monitor Option
This feature reports the status of the AED to a web portal. Great for large or multi-location deployments. Cuts down on administrative workload. Adds accountability and ensures readiness.
