While Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are now very affordable and easy to use, merely having an AED onsite is not enough. If programs are not properly documented, communicated, and maintained, staff and others may not know how to respond in an emergency, equipment can cease to be effective, and organizations can face regulatory sanctions and penalties. CardioReady provides the complete, turnkey solution to mitigate and prevent these risks, enabling our clients to fortify their financial positions and their reputations.
In addition, each of the 50 states in the U.S. now mandates usage of AEDs across various business classes. However laws vary from state to state, making it difficult for organizations to navigate, and more importantly, comply with varying, and sometimes confusing regulations. As a result, we are guided by the philosophy that AED programs should be: More Effective, Easier, and More Affordable.
Our integrated, custom solutions help clients across North America overcome these issues. We do this by providing two main components that eliminate the concerns related to maintaining an effective and compliant AED program:
We offer a fully integrated solution, starting with evaluation and AED procurement through training, management, and certification. With a dedicated Relationship Manager supporting you all along the way, we simplify and improve the process for rescue readiness and compliance.
Ultimately, CardioReady Certification ensures your location has met the standards necessary to act with the speed and certainty needed to save lives. Simply put, CardioReady protects the heart of your organization.
Leveraging our own assets to drive investigation of key issues as well as analysis of third-party research, CardioReady is a thought leader in the AED sector.
