What is an AED?

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a safe and easy-to-use machine which is used to treat Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

Facts about AEDs

Every day SCA kills 12 New Zealanders whose lives could have been saved by an affordable, easy-to-use device.
The survival rate is less than 1% using CPR alone. If an AED is applied within 3 minutes, 75% of SCA patients will survive.

SCA can affect anyone of any age, background and fitness level – it does not discriminate, and gives no warning as to when it will strike. We offer a wide range of AED options catering for all purposes from personal to professional use.
