What is an AED?
An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient.  The AED is able to treat the patient by application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.  AEDs are designed to be simple so that anyone can use one.  Proper use of an AED is taught in our CPR first aid classes.

Who do I call to learn more or buy an Automated External Defibrillator or AED?
Keith Murray sells and trains people how to use AED's.  Keith is a former EMT Firefighter with over 20 years training experience.  Keith holds a masters degree from Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania and has instructed people of all ages and backgrounds including high school students, college students, professional groups, trade groups and just about any other group you can imagine.  Not everyone is a good instructor, and not every instructor has used an AED in real life.  Below is a story about how Keith Murray saved a man in the Atlanta Airport with an AED.  Trust me – CPR and AED training is the most valuable skill you can learn.  The life you save maybe a loved one.  Please read the news stories in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and The Palm Beach Post.

Why do you need an AED program in the workplace?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest accounts for 13% of on-the-job fatalities. OSHA has indicated the importance of AEDs and encourages the use of these live saving devices in the workplace.  With the cost of AEDs starting at just $1,200 it’s a small price to pay for saving a life.

What does OSHA indicate about AEDs?
"Because the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) can save the lives of workers who experience cardiac arrest while on the job, OSHA today encouraged employers to consider making this equipment available in their workplace."
- US Department of Labor, Office of Public Affairs, Dec. 17, 2001
 
What about Federal Laws regarding the use of AEDs?
The Cardiac Arrest Survival Act (CASA) of 2000 is our nation's first legislation recognizing the lifesaving role played by automated external defibrillators (AEDs).  The law highlights the need to make AEDs accessible to anyone who has had proper training, not just professional medical personnel.  The law protects trained AED users from liability, and also protects any person who has maintained the device, provided training, tested the device or acquired it.  The law also augments existing state "Good Samaritan" laws by ensuring federal liability protection for trained users and purchasers of AEDs.
 
AED Liability - Am I safer with or without an AED?
Florida is a very litigious state.  Attorneys are advertising everywhere and many people view filing lawsuits as hitting the lottery.  But not having an AED may put you at greater than owning one.  The increasing number of AEDs in public places, coupled with the fact that AEDS dramatically increase cardiac arrest survival rates may establish a standard of care.  If the property down the road has an AED program in place to save lives, why doesn’t your property offer the same protection?

Signed into federal law in 2000, the Cardiac Arrest Survival Act (CASA) provides limited immunity from civil liability for those who acquire or use an AED if the state has not otherwise granted immunity for such persons under other statutes.

Will my health insurance cover an Automated External Defibrillator or AED?
There are some medical conditions that may meet the criteria for medical necessity for an Automated External Defibrillator.  If a physician determines that the Automated External Defibrillator is medically necessary, a letter written on the physician’s letterhead may help an insurance carrier or other payer to understand the patient’s situation.  Please note - Due to the wide range of health insurance policies and patient conditions, The CPR School cannot guarantee that an insurance company will cover or pay for your AED.

Is my business or association required to have an AED on property?
Ordinances and laws vary by city and state.  Coral Gables, Coral Springs, Davie, Plantation, Sunrise and Parkland all have an AED ordinance requiring Automated External Defibrillators (AED) in many businesses.  These ordinances typically require restaurants, hotels, health clubs, movie theaters and retail stores.  Ordinances and laws vary by location and business.

Will my health insurance cover an Automated External Defibrillator or AED?
There are some medical conditions that may meet the criteria for medical necessity for an Automated External Defibrillator.  If a physician determines that the Automated External Defibrillator is medically necessary, a letter written on the physician’s letterhead may help an insurance carrier or other payer to understand the patient’s situation.  Please note - Due to the wide range of health insurance policies and patient conditions, The CPR School cannot guarantee that an insurance company will cover or pay for your AED.

Do you sell AEDs wholesale or retail?
The majority of our customers are retail buyers, purchasing 1-6 AEDs at a time.  We do however offer discounts to resellers and large volume buyers.

Can you upgrade our AED to the new 2010 CPR guidlines?
Yes, once the new software has been released we can assist you with the upgrade of your AED.  Please note, some AEDs can't be upgraded to the new guidlines or may need to be sent back to the factory for a hardware upgrade.

We have an AED that does not work.  Can you repair it?
Yes, many of our customers have AEDs that are no longer working properly.  Often times we are able to upgrade the software, replace the old batteries and AED electrode pads and get them back into service.  If the AED requires additional work, we will contact the manufacturer to see if the problem is covered under warranty.   If you have an AED that is not working, call us.  You have nothing to lose.

We have several older AEDs and want to trade them in.  Do you accept trade ins?
Yes, we will take your old AEDs on trade for new ones.  Please call us to discuss.

Do you offer AED training and who teached the classes?
Yes, we offer training.  Keith Murray is the owner of The CPR School, LLC.   Keith is a former Florida EMT Firefighter with over 20 years training experience.  Keith holds a masters degree from Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania and has instructed people of all ages and backgrounds including high school students, college students, professional groups, trade groups, hotel and resort workers, doctors, dentists, dental hygienists, condo associations, airline pilots, flight attendants, government employees and just about any other group you can imagine.  Keith recently used his CPR AED skills to save a traveler in the Atlanta airport.  Please click on the following link to read the story http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/07340/839484-55.stm

Why do we need an AED?  Can’t we just dial 911 and wait for emergency medical personnel?
Sudden cardiac arrest, which is the leading cause of death in the United States kills more people than breast cancer, lung cancer, and AIDS combined.  Currently 95 percent of all cardiac arrest victims die.  Without quick action and quick defibrillation your victim will almost certainly die.
