What is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)?

An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable medical device – adapted for use by laypeople - that that automatically diagnoses potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient and delivers an electric shock to the patient's heart.   This condition is known as sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).  The shock returns the heart to normal rhythm.
