AED’s or Automated External Defibrillators and are designed to be easy to use, compact, portable and very effective in a situation where a heart’s rhythm requires stimulation.
They are designed to be used by non-medical professionals as well as medical professionals – and are found in schools, workplaces, sport clubs as well as primary care surgeries.
Ease Of Use
If you are unfortunate to find someone who is not breathing or breathing in an irregular way, the first thing is to call 999 and then start CPR. If you are acting on your own, do not stop the CPR to go and get a defibrillator. When the opportunity arises, send someone else to find the defibrillator. Once you have the defibrillator, all you need to do is follow the spoken instructions.
The AED’s are set up to be intuitive to the user. The machines guide the operator through the process by verbal instructions and visual prompts. They are safe and are configured to not allow an electrical shock to be given unless to the heart unless is it detected that the heart rhythm requires it.
