Defibrillator & AED FAQs


An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.

AED is used in situations when no heart beat is detected. The device generates a shock to revive the victim’s heart. Another situation in which AED is used is when a person suffers from ventricular fibrillation (v-fib).

Defibrillators are normally located in workplaces and public spaces like airports, shopping centres, community centres, and train stations. These defibrillators are known as public access defibrillators (PADs) as anyone can use them.

An AED may beep for several reasons: Disconnected Electrode Pads: If your AED is beeping and requires electrode pads to be pre-connected, make sure your electrode pads are connected to the AED.

SCA occurs when the electrical system of the heart becomes chaotic, causing it to stop beating effectively.
