Navigation Links Issues Warning to Consumers Concerning AED Scams

Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

As awareness surrounding AEDs and their impact on positive outcomes for victims of sudden cardiac awareness increases, the overall market for this product has greatly expanded. This is wonderful news for public health and safety, but it has unfortunately opened the door for disreputable distributors to take advantage of unsuspecting customers. Traditionally, defibrillator purchasers have been hospitals, EMT services, and other groups tied to healthcare professionals who are highly aware of what to look for in medical devices and their distributors. Today, many potential AED customers are nonprofits, schools, churches, and other organizations lacking a strong tie to the market making them prime targets for scams and unethical business dealings. prides themselves on offering customers low-prices for top-notch products and services while providing full transparency. The company would like to warn potential buyers regarding scams they may encounter while purchasing an AED.

One unfortunate practice potential AED consumers may stumble upon is "grants" or "partial grants" offered by distributors. These distributors will often not post the retail price or any models on their website, but rather ask customers to complete information forms regarding their group. The distributor will then offer the customer a quote for an AED that includes a price deduction for a "grant"; however, this quote will often be only slightly less than retail price. This practice also does not allow customers to select the right AED model for their needs. suggests customers, looking for funds for an AED, download their Grant Guide which details the process of applying for reputable grants.

When looking to save money, consumers may also consider purchasing a refurbished AED model. is proud to employ factory trained and certified biomedical technicians who repair and test AEDs using an 11 Point Checklist before offering these units for sale as recertified AEDs. However, many distributors do not employ or work with similarly qualified technicians, and they often do not utilize testing equipment that is up to manufacturer standards. Purchasing this type of undertested equipment could potentially lead to dealing with a malfunctioning AED during an emergency. encourages customers to use their best judgment when shopping around for quotes. Justin Darby, Director of Marketing at states, "If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Our sales representatives are more than willing to compare quotes with you and see how we can match your price while ensuring you receive quality products and service." sells and services both new and recertified AEDs. The company is located in Brentwood, TN and serves over 20,000 customers in all 50 states and over 40 countries worldwide. For more information, please visit:
