AEDs are easy to use and save lives
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are lightweight, portable devices that deliver an electric shock to a heart in cardiac arrest, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. This electric shock allows the heart to resume pumping blood and oxygen throughout the body, so that organs can function properly.
Together with CPR, an AED can save a life.
Modern AEDs are very easy to use. With voice-aided CPR coaching and clear diagrams for electrode placement, you can administer a shock within a few seconds. They allow you to help save a life with just the touch of a button.
