Medtronic Offers Indemnity Program to Corporate Defibrillator Buyers

Healthcare consumers are widely considered to be more savvy and attuned to the use of medical technologies today than ever before. But apparently that fact isn't enough to convince businesses that they should equip their workplaces with automatic external defibrillators (AEDs)—devices that can dramatically increase the survival rate among victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Instead, many companies have so far sidestepped recommendations to install AEDs, frequently citing the liability claims that could arise from use of the devices.

But that trend could soon be changing. To eliminate the liability barrier to greater adoption of AEDs in the workplace, Medtronic Emergency Response Systems (Redmond, WA), a business unit of Medtronic Inc. (Minneapolis), has introduced a liability protection program for corporate AED buyers.
