Choosing the Right AED

When selecting the best AED for your needs consider these factors:

Ease of Use

Easy to use AEDs are best suited for municipal buildings, businesses, schools, churches, airports or sporting events which makes them usable by most people with very little training. Clinical situations typically require more advanced features that include multiparameter monitoring capabilities.


All AEDs sold by AED saint meet American Heart Association guidelines, however each AED has unique differences. Some AEDs are fully-automatic, while others are semi-automatic. Your AED can be equipped with advanced technology to offer multiple defibrillation modes, to allow for multiple language configurations, and to view ECG waveforms for ACLS.

Cost of Ownership

All AEDs are required by law to have their batteries, pads, and other consumables replaced so the AED can operate safely and effectively. Replacement costs depend on the AED brand and model. AED saint has a full line of AED accessories to keep your AED in top working shape.


An AED must be reliable in the event of a medical emergency. When purchasing an AED, consider the battery life and construction durability requirements of your intended use.  AED saint only sells premium AEDs and accessories so you can shop with confidence. 


Think about how and where you might use your AED. Will your AED travel with you to sporting events, family gatherings, or other functions? Will it need a soft case, rugged shell, or wall cabinet to keep it safe? If you are intending to keep your AED for a period of time, can it be upgraded to meet future guidelines? Make sure to select an AED that is versatile enough to perform wherever you might need it.
