How Much Does an AED Cost - Your Ideal AED Price

How Much Does an AED Cost? – Your Ideal AED Price

 

The purchase of AEDs is becoming more popular. Many would agree that it is worth every penny no matter what the AED price. Just knowing that an AED can help in emergencies makes it an excellent purchase. Not only does having access to one increase a person’s chance of survival innumerably, just having one on site is often a selling feature and ease of fear.

 

Why the AED Price Shouldn’t be the Focus

 

The principal of a product’s price is dependent on the trust we put in quality. It is the same as not wanting to spend less money on tires simply to save money. We will pay more so we are safer behind the wheel (and so are our family and friends). AEDs follow the same concept. Finding the cheapest version does not mean that you are cheating the system. There are downfalls paired with why those models are cheaper (for example, lower battery life, difficult battery insertion, faulty machinery, etc.). Buying the cheaper version also ensures you aren’t purchasing the highest quality. First Edition First Aid Training Inc. sells Philips AED’s because we believe in quality. When someone’s life is on the line, we want the AED to work 100%. Why take the chance on a system that is complicated or less superior, especially when it is a matter of life or death? If we aren’t willing to pay the AED price, are we willing to risk someone’s life?

 

What All AEDs Have

 

Depending on the brand, the AED price and style can vary. At First Edition First Aid Training Inc., we supply the same Phillips brand AED’s and packages to ensure that there is continuity between the products. Depending on the type of AED you purchase, there will be different product additions (for example, child SMART pads are only available in select packages). Despite different packages, it is good to know that each AED will offer the same following features:

 

  • Step-by-step guidance (installed voice instructions to guide you through the process)
  • Ready to use (easy set-up, pre-installed pads and battery)
  • Instructions adapt to your pace (prompts will be repeated if missed)
  • Fast shocks (to improve treatment success)
  • Personalized therapy for each patient (Onsite automatically checks to make sure shock is necessary)
  • Easy to train your team

 

The Different Philips AEDs we Sell

 

Depending where you are planning on keeping/using your AED, there are some that are better suited for specific places.
