Choosing the Right Automated External Defibrillator
If you’re planning to invest in an AED machine for home or business installation, it’s important to be an informed buyer. While all AEDs generally work the same way, different models will offer different features and advantages. No matter which AED for sale you select, the benefits greatly outweigh the cost of AED machines.

AED Accessories: Enhancing Performance for Philips HeartStart OnSite and FRx
Get the most out of your machine with AED accessories. Protective cases like a plastic waterproof shell or a standard defibrillator case are essential for safe storage. Wall mount cases are also a great option; you can keep the AED in sight so that in the event of an emergency, rescuers can find it quickly. Our selection of AED accessories for sale includes everything you need to keep your AED functional and ready to use. We carry replacement batteries and pads that are compatible with our Philips AED machine for sale.
AED Maintenance and Care: Ensure Longevity and Reliability
As an AED owner, your work isn’t done once the unit is installed. AED maintenance is important to ensure your unit is functional and reliable for use. No one wants to be stuck with a faulty or broken AED in a cardiac emergency. Make sure to conduct regular unit checks, ideally at least once a month. During these inspections, ensure the pads and batteries have not expired. If they have expired, you can order replacement parts from our online store. It’s also a good idea to check the cabinet and/or carrying case. If the holder appears damaged, purchase a replacement from our site.
AED Placement Guide: Optimizing Accessibility and Effectiveness
Once you’ve purchased an AED machine for your home or business, the next step is determining where to install it. The most important criteria are visibility and accessibility. You want to ensure that anyone can find an AED quickly if it is needed. Don’t place it too high off the ground or in a difficult-to-reach area. You should also place it in a high-traffic zone, not somewhere that’s out of the way.
