Automated External Defibrillators

Sudden cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of heart function. If it’s not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death.  An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart that can stop an irregular rhythm and allow a normal rhythm to resume.  

Because AEDs are portable, it possible for non-medical people to respond to an emergency where defibrillation is required.. They can be made part of emergency response programs that also include rapid use of 9-1-1 and prompt delivery of cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). All of these activities are critical to improving survival from cardiac arrest.

 

AED users should be trained in CPR and use of the AED. Most AEDs require a prescription in the U.S.
