If I have never used my AED pads, do I have to purchase replacement pads?


The pads must be replaced prior to the expiration date listed on the pads.  Each of the manufactures has tested the pads to determine the last month/year that the pads are fully functional.  Over time the pads will begin to dry out.  The adhesive/gel on the back of the pads dries out and doesn't allow the pads to properly connect to the victim, thus hindering the AED from analyzing the victim properly.

The CASA Act of 2000 requires that the AED be maintained according to the manufacture's guidelines, as well as, many state laws.  All manufactures require the pads and batteries be replaced prior to the expiration date.  Each manufacture has varying expiration dates.  To determine your manufacture's expiration dates see your owner's manual for the AED or contact AED-SHOP.com.

Our goal at AED-SHOP.com is to educate the public about Sudden Cardiac Arrest and how AEDs increase the survival rate. In need of an AED for your organization, CPR training for your staff, or AED replacement accessories?  Contact us today with your questions or concerns at 877-251-7467 or customerservice@aed-shop.com.
