AEDs are FDA-regulated medical devices approved for use by non-medically trained lay people to treat sudden cardiac arrest. AED owners are responsible for ensuring these life-saving devices are ready to work every time they are needed. But ensuring readiness can be a real challenge for organizations of any size.

Yes, AEDs perform periodic self-tests of internal components, and all AEDs have visual status indicators that alert owners if there’s a problem with the device’s readiness. But regularly checking for these indications, and keeping track of the various expiration dates of each AED’s batteries and pads, are all in human hands. And humans have a lot on their hands already. But coming soon, there’s AED Sentinel™, a remote AED monitoring system built for every AED program.

Today’s reliance on human AED inspectors results in a high rate of non-compliance, meaning large numbers of AEDs go uninspected or poorly maintained for long periods of time. This leads to an increased risk of AED failure, avoidable sudden cardiac death and lawsuits. And, of course, there are direct and indirect costs associated with pulling valuable employees away from their primary jobs to perform these checks. AED Sentinel eliminates the burden and cost of human inspections, and reduces the risk and consequences of AED inspection non-compliance and associated AED failure.

AED Sentinel takes the pain out of your AED program responsibilities with:

The best automated solution to ensure readiness:

Instantly increase your inspection frequency from (maybe) once per month to multiple checks per day, along with 24/7 automated monitoring of your AEDs and accessories.

Cost-effective compliance:
