Defibrillator (AED) Training

WHAT IS AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATION

What Is Automated External Defibrillation

If you’ve ever watched a medical drama on TV and seen the doctor shout “clear!” and then deliver 1000 volts to the patient’s heart, you’ll know what a Defibrillator (or Automated External Defibrillator/AED) is. In a nutshell if someone goes into cardiac arrest, a defibrillator (or AED) is a portable device that delivers an electric shock that will hopefully interrupt the irregular or abnormal heartbeat causing cardiac arrest and give the heart a chance to establish a more regular rhythm.

AED/Defibrillator Training

Automated External Defibrillation or AED training is a very worthwhile addition to your first aid training. CPR alone will not revive a patient. It will merely keep oxygen flowing to the casualty’s brain. You need to know how to use an AED and when it is the right time to use one.
