American Med Supply is a national provider of Heart Defibrillators and offer Cardiac Safety Programs designed "To Help Save Lives" We are always working to educate our community about the safety benefits of having Heart Defibrillators readily available in the event of a medical emergency. Below are some questions you may have:

Why do our office facilities need Heart Defibrillators?

Because "Heart Defibrillators Save Lives". Heart Disease is the Number 1 killer of Americans, taking the lives of over 300,000 of our family, friends and neighbors each year. The national statistics are staggering-when someone suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the survival rate is only 5%. In other words, out of twenty people, only one will survive. By having a Heart Defibrillator available, you may help increase someone's chance for survival by as much as 90%!!

How do we acquire a Heart Defibrillator and what are our responsibilities?

American Med Supply will ship the Defibrillator and related Accessory Items directly to your office. Everything will arrive to you fully ready-for-use. Once you receive your shipment, you will receive a Free In-Service Instructional Lesson from one of our knowledgeable staff at LifeGuard Medical Solutions.

Why do we need a Physician's Prescription and how much will it cost?

As the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies a Heart Defibrillator as a Medical Device, most states require you have a Physician's Prescription to purchase. LifeGuard Medical Solutions has an On-Staff Medical Director (Dr. John C. Frist, MD) who will provide you and/or your business the necessary prescription.

How will we be trained to use the Heart Defibrillator?

While a Heart Defibrillator is very simple to operate (complete with voice prompts to guide you through a rescue), proper training remains a very important component. LifeGuard Medical Solutions is a National Training Provider for the American Heart Association (AHA) and will schedule a convenient time (including nights/weekends) to go onsite to train your staff. As some locations may be too expensive for us to travel, we will assist you to find a qualified Instructor from a local chapter of the AHA. Training costs are usually around $45-$55 per student (with a 10-student minimum).

Do we need to worry about monitoring the Heart Defibrillator?

Yes - But maintaining our defibrillators is VERY SIMPLE. While our defibrillators have built-in safeguards and perform self-analysis tests, a routine monitoring of the device is advised to ensure it is always ready-for-use. Our defibrillators are very simple to maintain - you simply perform a visual verification of the self test indicator. Other than the visual check, you only need to make sure that the batteries and pads are not beyond their expiration dates. As part of the Annual Maintenance Agreement (an option which most of our clients purchase), LifeGuard Medical Solutions will monitor not only the expiration dates of your batteries, pads and training certifications, but will also provide a 24-hour Customer Support Protection Plan.

Early Defibrillation Program Management

Managing an Early Defibrillation Program can become an overwhelming and complicated process. From monitoring the expiration dates of batteries and electrode pads, to overseeing the recertification training schedules of employees, to implementing emergency protocols, managing a program alone can become a challenging task.

"Our job is to make your job easier"
