How much does a defibrillator cost?

Using an automatic external defibrillator (AED) can increase survival rates in cardiac arrest situations by up to five times. Essentially, the sooner someone receives defibrillation, the greater their chance of survival.

A defibrillator is a live-saving device that can be used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) – a condition in which the heart stops unexpectedly. So, are all defibrillators the same? How much does a defibrillator cost?

Defibrillators vary in cost, depending on the features you’re looking for. Defibrillators used by medical teams, hospitals and paramedics are top of the range devices, so it makes sense that they’re more expensive. For the public, all you need is a simple, effective and inexpensive AED to save a life in an emergency situation.

What’s the difference?

Is it worth paying more for an AED? Well, defibrillators come with varying degrees of protection from dust and damage – from basic to military grade. If you’re installing one at a sporting centre, for example, it might be a good idea to invest in something with a little more protection than an AED for home use.

 Whereas some defibrillators provide additional features such as an LCD screen and real-time feedback, every defibrillator will provide you with clear instructions.

Are there any other costs?

Defibrillators are inexpensive to buy and easy to maintain. Pads and batteries will need to be replaced – either when they expire or when the pads have been used for a cardiac arrest rescue but, again, these are inexpensive and easy to find.

One of the best things about buying an AED defibrillator is that you don’t have to spend money on education and training to use them. Even people who have never operated an AED before can easily use a defibrillator and save a life in an emergency.
