Default Source for portable defib machines - outdated?

Life guards down here could use some, I am willing to buy. Didn't know if anyone here sells them or has a source for them.

Thanks - one life could have been saved with one.

Good enough for me.

Maybe in the US they get "dated" and need to be replaced?

Thanks for any help...

Here's an article that might be of interest to you.

I think it's great you want to help, but maybe this can help insure that you get the right device.

Yes, I could clearly see you have good intent. I would just hate to see you have an expectation of full security when clearly the industry needs some frank transparency.

Further, you say "down there", and I'm taking from that you mean Cozumel, by your profile. I think you really need to make sure it's protected from that environment.

If I was you, I would contact a few ocean lifeguard offices and ask for their opinions. I would think, not only do they have purchase experience, but they would also have use experience. So many of these sit on shelves.

Good luck & Aloha.

I purchased one for my boat. I take passengers of all ages on long trips to Bahamas. Plus it is part of the boats lightning protection system (the after the fact part).

Usually with the big boat shows (ie: Miami) there are vendors that give $100 or so off coupons.

Bought it here:
