Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest strikes over 350,000 people in the United States annually, and the overall survival rate is estimated to be less than five percent. Many organizations are embracing automated external defibrillator (AED) programs because AED use is the best strategy for treating sudden cardiac arrest in non-medical settings. But there’s much more to saving a life with an AED than simply having an AED in your facility.

A complex web of laws impacts the design, implementation, and operation of AED programs. Whether you’re a small business or a large corporation, you must successfully navigate the health and safety regulations associated with incorporating AEDs into your facility to ensure that your program is not only compliant but also prepared to aid rescuers in their life-saving efforts. Here are five reasons why your organization needs an AED Program Management service.

1. Position your AED program for success

An AED Program Management service provides AED/CPR education to staff, enhances the effectiveness of your first responders, and keeps track of your equipment maintenance, ensuring that your AEDs are ready to use when an emergency happens.

2. Reduce liability

All 50 states have Good Samaritan laws protecting organizations that choose to deploy AEDs. These laws reduce fears about the legal repercussions of using AEDs during rescue attempts. In order to receive protection under Good Samaritan laws, however, an organization must ensure compliance with local, state, and federal laws. An AED Program Management service keeps your AED program compliant and offers liability indemnification for your business.

3. Guarantee total compliance

Federal and some state regulations require meticulous record keeping, AED maintenance, medical direction and oversight, and heart safe training. AED Program Management will take care of all of that for you. For example guaranteeing the ongoing compliance.

4. One-stop shop for your health and safety needs

An AED Program Management service makes AED ownership easy by offering support for every aspect of your AED program, from installation to administration to maintenance. With one point of contact overseeing all aspects of AED program, you’ll be assured of consistent results.

5. Save administrative time

Deploying and maintaining an AED program can be a complex, time-consuming process. An AED Program Management service is an effective management tool that saves administrative time by tracking vital components of your AED program, such as battery expiration, electrode pad expiration, training schedules, staff records, and routine maintenance inspection.
