What is an AED Machine?
- Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) is a lightweight, portable, battery-operated, easy-to-use device designed to analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, send an electrical shock to the heart to restore normal rhythm.
- This device is used to treat people experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
- The AED system includes accessories, such as pad electrodes and a battery that is necessary for the device to detect and interpret an electrocardiogram and deliver an electrical shock.
- AED defibrillators are simple to operate and can be used by laypersons and basic life support-trained personnel.
- These machines are widely available in airports, offices, schools, casinos, and other public areas.
How does an AED Defibrillator work?
- The automated external defibrillator has an in-built computer and uses sticky pads with sensors called “electrodes” to analyze the patient’s heart rhythm.
- The adhesive electrodes are attached to the person with a cardiac arrest.
- After analyzing, the electrodes send the information to a computer in the AED.
- The computer determines whether an electric shock is needed or not.
- If defibrillation is needed, the digitally recorded voice prompts the rescuer to press the “shock” button to deliver the shock to the victim.
