AED In The Home

AEDs are considered medical devices and most manufacturers require a prescription in order to sell you an AED. One manufacturer (Philips) is authorized by the FDA to sell the HeartStart AED without a prescription. Though the other manufacturers are required to have a prescription before they can sell you the device, these manufacturers are able to help facilitate your obtaining a prescription if you do not have one from your doctor.
