What is an AED?
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.
When is AED Used?
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).
Where can I find a defibrillator?
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.
