How AEDs Work
AEDs are relatively simple to use and, being fully automated with voice commands, nearly eliminate user error. AEDs detect abnormal heart rhythms in the victim, and will administer a shock only if necessary.
- When the Philips HeartStart® AED does not recommend shock and CPR is needed,
it will coach the bystander through the proper administration of CPR, even if that
person is not trained in the technique.
- FAEDs perform self-checks and are nearly maintenance-free.
