Why have an AED?

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can happen to anyone—anywhere. That’s why public access automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are so important - they put lifesaving technology in the right place.

What is an AED?

AEDs are small electronic devices designed to allow minimally trained people to provide lifesaving defibrillation (electric shock to the heart) to victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. AEDs are designed to be used by anyone at anytime, and:

  • Provide step-by-step instructions to the responder, with some models equipped with CPR coaching.
  • Require no formal training.
  • Require minimal maintenance and conduct regular self-tests to alert you when maintenance is required.
  • Will only provide a shock to a victim who is in cardiac arrest and presents in a shockable rhythm.

Please see our range of AEDs on offer below. For more information contact: MedicalEmergency@pharmaco.co.nz, 0508 414 564
