Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are used to help someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest, which can be caused by a disruption in the heart’s electrical activity that causes the heart to beat dangerously fast (pulseless ventricular tachycardia) or irregularly (ventricular fibrillation). Because of this altered heart rhythm (arrhythmia), the heart can’t effectively pump oxygenated blood around the body, stopping blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. This can result in death if not treated within minutes.

In the event of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the AED pads can be attached to the chest of the patient. The AED then analyses their heart rhythm, and if the arrhythmia is PVT or VFIB, the AED will advise and then administer an electric shock, in an attempt to allow the heart to reset to a normal sinus rhythm. AEDs save lives. Defibrillation is the definitive treatment for these arrhythmias.
