Affordable AED's for Schools and Educational Institutions

Affordable AED's for Schools and Educational Institutions

Each year, we sadly lose 7,000 young people to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). However, most schools cannot afford to have an medical doctor or medic on school grounds during school hours and after-school activities.

However it is much easier to afford to have easy-to-use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) with voice prompts or easy to follow instructions/ pictures to walk users through the simple steps necessary in life-saving defibrillation and CPR. Every school should have an AED, especially if yours offers athletic or physical activity programs.
Schools that have needed a portable AED now say they can’t imagine being without it. That’s why so many have carried out fundraising and sponsorship campaigns to keep their children, staff, and visitors safe whilst on the grounds. 
Here at SP Services we are urging teachers to get their schools equipped with life saving defibrillators so their staff and pupils can receive the best care in the rare chance of a cardiac arrest
The Life-Saving Importance of AEDs
Here are some of the reasons why more and more schools, colleges and educational institutions are investing in AEDs and making early defibrillation a part of their emergency response plans:

  • Defibrillation within three minutes of sudden cardiac arrest increases the chances of survival to 70 percent. Shock within one minute of collapse raises the survival rate to 90 percent.
  • Calling 999 is essential but the wait for first responders may take too long. The average call-to-shock time in a typical community is nine minutes. 
  • Simple switch to select adult or child mode
  • Pre-connected 'smart' electrodes
  • 'i' button technology
  • Ambient noise detection
  • Pad life indicator
  • CPR detection
  • Integrated pad storage
  • Low cost of ownership
  • No need to buy separate child pads
  • Internal memory records 5 events
  • Built in SD card port and IrDA port
  • 7 year warranty on unit
  • Turn on the device
  • Apply the QUIK-PAK electrode pads to the victim


SP Services have a range of AED's available so that you can choose the right model for your schools needs. From voice prompted shock delivery, to step by step pictures, we are sure you will find the right AED for you. 


iPAD SP1 - DF/401

The iPAD SP1 is an easy-to-use Semi-Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) that has been ergonomically designed resulting in a small, light, and portable semi automatic AED defibrillator. The (AED) automatically analyses the patient's electrocardiogram (ECG) and determines if a cardiac arrest that requires defibrillation has occurred - in the event that the device has determined a shock is required the operator will be prompted, this functionality makes the device accessible for use by emergency responders with minimal training.

The device is suitable for use on both adults & children - simple to switch from Adult to Child safe modes without having to change pads whilst a safety cover prevents accidental switching as a further integrated safety feature.

Supplied ready to go with 2 sets of pads, 2 AED starter kits, a 4 year lithium battery and a FREE carry case


Lifepak CR PLUS - DF/251

The LIFEPAK CR Plus AED's are designed with a simple two-step process that gives the first person to respond to a SCA victim the confidence they need to help save a life. A responder only needs to: 

  • Turn on the device
  • Apply the QUIK-PAK electrode pads to the victim

The fully automatic model of the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED is designed to deliver a shock only if it determines a heart needs it. No one even needs to press a shock button.

The LIFEPAK CR Plus AED is also easy to own and maintain. Synchronized replacement of the electrodes and battery CHARGE-PAK™  will keep your maintenance burden at a minimum. And weekly and monthly self-tests—plus a visible readiness display with four indicators—let you know it’s ready to do its job.

Effective in maximizing the chance for survival 

Although not everyone can be saved from sudden cardiac arrest, studies show that early defibrillation can dramatically improve survival rates. The LIFEPAK CR Plus AED has the capability to escalate to an industry-leading 360 joules when necessary, providing the extra power that may be needed for hard-to-defibrillate victims. Defibrillation and CPR prompts are consistent with AHA guidelines. And because the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED uses the same electrodes as other LIFEPAK devices—the choice of more EMS units worldwide than any other brand—critical time can be saved transferring victims to professional medical care.
