Things to consider when purchasing a defibrillator
Our units will self maintain themselves and warn you if they have issues.

They don’t require any ongoing maintenance on a regular basis although the pads are single use and have expiry dates.
Should be appropriate to the environment. For example if it is going to be outside it should be in a weatherproof cabinet but if it is being stored inside an office it could just be clearly labeled on a shelf.
Defibs are designed to be used by a complete novice and most will give clear instructions. Saying that, training could increase the chance of someone helping in an emergency and so we would always recommended it. Our sister company STS First Aid has a variety of courses that can help.
