Using an AED
When someone has a heart attack (sudden cardiac arrest or SCA), an AED can be used to deliver a short, powerful electric shock to help the heart regain its natural rhythm. Anyone can quickly learn to use an defibrillator – you don’t need to be a medical professional.
Using an AED is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Pull handle
- Apply pads
