  1. Q

    What is an automated external defibrillator (AED)?


    An AED is a life-saving medical device that analyzes the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, directs the rescuer to deliver an electrical shock to the victim.
    This shock, called defibrillation, may help the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm of its own.

  2. Q

    Where can I find AEDs?


    AEDs can be found in shopping malls, airports, schools, and other places where large groups of people gather and the risk of a sudden cardiac arrest incident is very likely.

  3. Q

    How does an AED work?


    It uses voice prompts to instruct the rescuer.
    Once is turned on, the rescuer will be prompted to apply two electrodes provided with the AED to the victim's chest.
    Once applied, the AED will analyze the victim's heart rhythm.
    If a defibrillation shock is advised, the device will charge itself and instruct the rescuer to stand clear of the victim and to press the shock button.
