Does My AED Have an Expiration Date?

While AEDs do not technically have an expiration date, all manufacturers strongly recommend AEDs are replaced every 8-10 years. Being that AEDs are electronic devices, internal components are bound to eventually wear out and potentially fail in an emergency. Other important factors to consider are:

  • Whether or Not your warranty is expired
  • Whether or Not your AED compliant with current American Heart Association guidelines
  • Whether or not you're using outdated technology

How can I have my AED Inspected?

All modern AEDs will run self-tests and are self-maintaining. If the AED detects something is not right, you will see either a flashing red light, a red X, or it will beep at you. While a formal inspection may not be necessary for AEDs, you should check your unit monthly to ensure that it is ready for an emergency and that pads/batteries are not expired. Each unit has an indicator that it is ready for an emergency (either a flashing green light or a check mark), and pads and batteries have their expiration dates on the packages.
