AED Locator

An automated external defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.

  • The Automated External Defibrillator is a life-saving device for people in Cardiac Arrest
  • AED’s are automatic and easy to use
  • They detect abnormal heart rhythms and provides the user with instructions
  • They are designed to be simple to use for the public
  • All Fire Engines, Ladder trucks, & ambulances carry them
  • For every minute that a person in cardiac arrest goes without being successfully treated by a defibrillator, the chance of survival decreases by 7 percent per minute
  • It decreases by 10 percent per minute as time advances beyond 3 minutes
