An automated external defibrillator (AED) is one of the most important safety tools in your facility. As equipment matures and technology advances, it is important to evaluate the age and capabilities of your AEDs to determine if it’s time for a replacement.

Estimates of defibrillator life expectancy range from five years (The American Hospital Association 2004 Estimated Useful Lives of Depreciable Hospital Assets) to eight years (The Department of the Army Technical Bulletin TB MED 7). This webinar will review a checklist of items to consider and help you understand when it’s time for you to replace your units.
