During a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) every second counts. You don't want to be in the middle of an emergency when you discover your defibrillator hasn't been set up or requires trouble shooting.
This is why it is important that defibrillators are regularly monitored and maintained to ensure it's ready to go when you need it.
New defibrillators will require some basic set up to ensure they're ready to be used in an emergency.
