❤ Sudden Cardiac Arrest - has your AED had a Health Check ?
You may already have an AED, but are you confident it still works?
Shock by an AED to is the sole course of treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest. It is vital to ensure that your device is in correct working order so it can be used to help save a life in the event of an emergency.
At Amtech, we have identified that many of the AED’s we have supplied to clients over the last 10 years are nearing the end of the manufacturer’s warranty period. Thus, your device may no longer be covered by the company who manufactured your AED, and will not be liable for replacement or repair should it encounter any issues.
As an AED is the only definitive treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest, it is vital to ensure your device is working correctly and can be used to help save a life in the event of an emergency. The potential risk following an end of warranty is the chance of your AED not performing effectively when needed in a rescue - a risk noone wants to take.
We encourage you to take a minute or so - Check that your AED is ready.

Product Solutions When Wearing a Mask!
As the effort to make New Zealand Covid-Free continues, wearing PPE, particularly masks, is becoming a daily necessity for many.

Hydrocolloid and film dressings are ideal for protecting delicate skin in these vulnerable areas.

Amazing Feedback from our Loyal Customers⭐
I just want to say how much I appreciate what you all do at Amtech for your customers.
Your staff are outstanding and I always know that whoever I deal with there, has the same amazing attitude and consistent service delivery. The staff are prompt in their response to everything we request and we also know that we will get an honest answer with what you can or not do – that creates a fantastic trust between client and supplier.
It is so reassuring from a client side to know that your staff are always there to try and help us and support us. (Right from the beginning your first call to me was “what can we do to help “, and that has always been the way)
I would like you to pass this on to staff so that they do realise that they are providing a service that is different to most and they are appreciated. Especially right now.
Kate, Capital Endoscopy.
