Medical Direction: A defibrillator is a medical device, therefore, most require a prescription written by a medical doctor prior to purchase. Currently the only AED that does no require a prescription is the Philips OnSite (the device of choice for CMG members). However, some states do require medical direction for public access defibrillator programs. Your organization may be required to have a physician oversee some aspects of the AED program such as training, EMS coordination protocol approval, standing orders and AED deployment strategies. Please contact our office to discuss medical direction requirements in your state. LifeGuard MD can help you determine if medical direction is needed. The Philips FRx AED does require a medical prescription for purchase.
