What AED do I Need?

What AED do I Need?

 

You’ve made the decision to purchase an AED. So, do you know what AED is best for you? When purchasing an AED there are many aspects you need to consider: what brand do I purchase and what type is best? First Edition First Aid Training Inc. has made the decision to supply Philips defibrillators for a number of reasons (dependency, usability, etc.). Philips is a brand we can trust, but also one that offers a machine for different needs. They are not a one-machine-fits all because something that is perfect for your home may not stand up on a worksite. Below are 3 types of AEDs that First Edition First Aid Training Inc. supplies and how they help you answer the question, “what AED do I need?”

 

Heartstart Onsite AED

An AED for the Office

 

What AED is better for the office than the Heartstart Onsite Philips Defibrillator? The Onsite defibrillator is a great choice for those looking to keep their AED in work-space locations. Whether you work in an office, café, lounge area, or board room, this AED is made with your workspace in mind. The compact kit is easily stored away, and has everything you need for an emergency. Various packages of this AED are available to guarantee you are prepared for anyone who may frequent your space. For example, child SMART pads are available for those who work in a place with children, like an elementary school. The Onsite AED is equipped with more accessories to help with more medical emergencies in populated areas (ex. The Fast Response Kit contains razors, gloves, mask, etc.).

 

Heartstart Onsite AED Package Inclusions:

  • Onsite AED
  • 1 Battery
  • 1 Adult SMART Pad (additional pads optional)
  • Carrying Case
  • Fast Response Kit
  • DVD
  • Infant/Child SMART Pads (optional)
  • Spare Battery (optional)

 

 

Heartstart In-Home AED

An AED for Home

 

The Heartstart In-Home AED is just as the name describes, it is best for your house and home. Although we hope that an emergency will never occur in our homes, the reality is that it happens. This AED is the exact same as the Onsite Philips AED, but smaller and with less accessories. It does not contain the fast response kit, infant/child pads, or a spare battery compared to the Onsite AED package options. The In-Home AED is made simple, easily stored in smaller spaces, and accessible for you to use quickly. Because it is the simplest AED (fewest accessories and simplest model), it is the cheapest to purchase, allowing you to have the means for a safe home. When deciding what AED to choose that works to keep you and your family prepared, the In-Home Philips AED is the best.
