Emergency Defibrillators (AED)
An AED Emergency Automated External Defibrillator restores the hearts normal rhythm during cardiac arrest. It is a small, lightweight device that is designed to administer an electric shock to restore a normal rhythm to victims experiencing cardiac arrest. An irregular heart rhythm is called an arrhythmia and it means that the heart cannot efficiently pump blood to other vital organs which will quickly become starved of the nutrients and life sustaining oxygen that it provides. An AED Defibrillator can jolt the heart in order to restore its normal rhythm by sending an electrical current directly to the heart muscle.
