An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.

Defibrillation is a time-sensitive issue! Always get emergency personnel in route by calling 9-1-1. Meanwhile, have someone else locate the closest AED and follow the instructions.

Be aware of AED placement in the places you frequent - you never know when you may need to access it to restart a heart.
