AEDs can save lives. But to save a life, an AED has to be ready to deliver a lifesaving shock and be in the hands of a trained volunteer responder. 


It takes a lot to set up and maintain a successful AED program. There’s a simple solution: Outsource it. Let PlusTrac™ do the worrying for you.

Medical Authorization

In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies almost all AEDs as Class III medical devices that require thorough and rigorous testing for safety. As a Class III medical device, an AED requires a prescription (or medical authorization) at time of purchase due to their administering invasive medical therapy.

However, an AED prescription is unlike a prescription for medication because you can’t administer CPR and shock yourself while unconscious; a trained responder is needed to use an AED and to perform CPR.

In addition to the U.S. federal requirement for medical authorization, individual areas and countries may also impose requirements for purchasing or owning an AED. Some areas have added the requirement that the prescribing physician be licensed where the AED will be located. PlusTrac™ not only provides a national medical director to oversee your program, but also local doctors to satisfy specific requirements.

Medical Direction

If medical authorization is the equivalent of a doctor writing a prescription and giving you permission to buy and own an AED, then what is medical direction? Simply put, medical direction is the creation of protocols and response plans, or where to go and what to do if sudden cardiac arrest occurs.

Your overseeing medical director will create a plan for you to follow that offers the best possible chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) using your AED. You will receive a customizable set of instructions detailing what to do with your AED from maintenance intervals to post-use medical reviews.

Medical direction requirements vary based on your location and we will assist you with fulfilling these requirements as part of your program.



Two Clicks Away

Customers who have purchased PlusTrac™ AED program management can now log into their account from their iPhone or Android using ZOLL's mobile app. CheckAED™ (known as Inspect AED™ internationally) allows customers to record routine inspections from their web-enabled mobile device. With just two clicks and fewer than 30 seconds, we can guarantee your compliance and readiness to use an AED right from the palm of your hand.


Making sure your AEDs are ready to use can be a difficult job, especially when you have a global deployment. Our online interactive system has been deployed in over 60 countries and is available in nine languages. With regional country support we make it easy to ensure that your AEDs are ready, compliant, and properly supported—no matter where they are located. The InspectAED™ mobile app even lets you record routine maintenance checks with your mobile device.

Whether you have a thousand AEDs—or just one—PlusTrac™ simplifies AED program management. Even if you have AEDs from several manufacturers, PlusTrac can help you manage them all. You can also use PlusTrac to monitor the training dates of volunteer responders and track your pad and battery expiration. It will also notify you of any manufactures' updates.

The Importance of AED Programs

Effective treatment for cardiac arrest demands an immediate response from an individual who recognizes cardiac arrest, calls 911, starts cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and uses an automated external defibrillator (AED).

On average, less than 10% of individuals who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive, but that number jumps to 42% when a victim receives CPR and a defibrillating shock from a bystander using an AED.1 That’s why AEDs are increasingly found in schools, at sporting events, and in public buildings. In many cases, having an AED is mandated by law.

Good Samaritan Protection

To encourage the use of AEDs, all 50 states have enacted Good Samaritan laws to protect AED providers and lay responders. But having an AED is not enough to ensure Good Samaritan protection. Your AED program is subject to a host of requirements beyond having working batteries and pads that are not expired.

Let PlusTrac™ maintain a complete record of your Good Samaritan status and keep you in constant contact with the manufacturer of your AED.
