What is an AED?

AED is an acronym that stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It is an electronic device that saves lives – when used correctly. Many large businesses and workplaces have AEDs on-premises as a part of their Emergency Preparedness Plan.

In an emergency, an AED is attached to the heart attack victim through easy to attach wire leads. Its built in controller speaks instructions to the operator, and it automatically proceeds through the life-saving sequence of delivering electrical shocks to jolt the heart back into regular beats.
