An AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is an important life-saving device. It emits an electrical charge that can be used to restart a person’s heart during a heart attack or other cardiac event. AEDs are often kept in places of business and other buildings for use in emergency situations. However, like with CPR and other life-saving measures, an AED should only be used by someone who is properly trained in its use.
If you have an AED in your place of business, then it is important that you have at least one person on staff who is trained in how to use this device. Using an AED properly at the proper time can make the difference between life and death.
