Is a computerized medical device. It can check the person’s heart rhythm. It can also recognize a rhythm that requires a shock. It can advise the rescuer when a shock is needed. It uses voice prompts, light and text messages to tell the rescuer the steps to take. AEDs are very accurate and easy to use. With a few hours of training, anyone can learn to operate an AED safely. It is the only machine that can restore a normal heart rhythm in victims of sudden cardiac arrest. An estimated 100, 000 lives could be saved each year if AEDs were widely used.
