Buying an AED is not something that should be put on the backburner
All AEDs perform self-maintenance checks on a daily, weekly and monthly basis to ensure that they are ready for use. In the event that the machine fails part of the test, the machine will beep to alert you that there is a fault with the machine or in some cases, can be communicated via WiFi.
An AED requires only a visual inspection on a weekly basis to ascertain whether the “ready” indicator is green.
