How do you use an automated external defibrillator (AED)?
Defibrillators are devices that give a controlled electric shock and can be used to resuscitate someone whose heart has stopped suddenly.
Many companies, public spaces and buildings are equipped with automated external defibrillators (heart defibrillators) for first aid nowadays. These devices are easy to use, even if you haven’t ever come across one before. Defibrillators can often be recognized as such based on the abbreviation “AED” and/or a green sign with a heart symbol on it.
