AED units are very easy to set up and they are basically all the same. If you have any questions on a particular AED unit, consult the manufacturer's instructions or search for the manufacturer's website on the internet.

To set up an AED unit, you need to make sure that it is complete, the battery is in place, there are no warning lights, the pads are not damaged or the seal was broken, the pads are connected to the unit (unless a system is designed that the pads are connected later), and that the unit is in a good, clean, dry state. If you see any problems with an AED unit, you need to get this fixed as soon as possible. It is recommended that all units are checked regularly in accordance with workplace risk assessments, policies, and practices as well as the manufacturer's recommendations.
