How much does it cost to buy a defibrillator?
A defibrillator is something that all workplaces, sport centres and public places should consider having on-site. Certain industries have been deemed more at risk by the British Heart Foundation. Having immediate access to an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) in the case of a Cardiac Arrest can be the difference between life and death.
When choosing your defibrillator, you should always consider what the actual cost of the device will be over its lifetime. Often a defibrillator will be sold at a low upfront cost, however ongoing costs can often cause future problems for companies.
What can a defibrillator cost?
Purchasing a defibrillator outright can be a costly process, especially for a small business. Not only do you have to pay out the initial price of £1000-£2000 for a new and up-to-date model, but the upkeep and maintenance is also an expensive factor.
If the AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) is used on a person suffering from a sudden cardiac arrest, then it will need to undergo maintenance before it can be used again. This includes a service and the replacement of pads. It is also recommended that your defibrillator undergoes an annual service to ensure that it is in full working order in case of an emergency.
An Affordable Alternative To Purchasing An AED
One way to avoid all of these expensive fees would be to be to consider renting a defibrillator for your business instead. For just £1 a day, you can provide immediate, potentially life-saving support to a victim of cardiac arrest.
