AED Laws by state

Good Samaritan Laws

The laws that regulate the use of AEDs vary by state. Some require training, registration and oversight from physicians but all 50 protect people who act in good faith with their AEDs in an effort to save a life. 

The laws that limit civil liability for "Good Samaritans" (well-intentioned, but potentially untrained lay-responders) are designed to encourage lay-response if an AED is accessible. It's important to realize that someone that has fallen victim to sudden cardiac arrest is, by technicality, dead. For an AED to save a life, it's estimated that a shock should be deployed, at most, 5 minutes after collapse. Every minute that passes after 5 minutes is estimated to reduce chances of survival by 10% and significantly damages the victim's brain. 


Good Samaritan laws vary by state, and may protect the AED user, to the AED user & the owner from civil liability. AED Professionals highly recommends that you are well versed with your jurisdiction's laws and regulations in place regarding the use and maintenance of Automated External Defibrillators.
