If you are considering purchasing a defibrillator then there are a few things to look out for.  All defibrillators work in the same way however some are more suited for Public Access use than others.

Look out for:

  • Reliability, IP rating, Warranty

  • Purchase Price/ Cost of Consumables

  • Battery & Pad life

  • Event Review & updating facility.
