Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a medical device used during cardiac arrest that will analyze a victim's cardiac rhythm, charge to a pre-determined energy level, and when prompted by the operator, deliver a shock through adhesive pads placed on the victim's chest. AEDs are effective and can increase a cardiac victim's chances of survival by up to 40% when combined with early access, early CPR, and early advanced cardiac life support.
