What is an AED?

The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a computerized medical device that checks a person’s heart rhythm. It can recognize which rhythms require a shock and can advise the rescuer when a shock is needed.

AEDs are very accurate and easy to use. With just a few hours of training, anyone can learn to operate an AED safely, in combination with CPR training. There are many different brands of AEDs, but the same basic steps apply to all brands. The American Heart Association does not recommend a specific brand or model.
