Why are AEDs so important?

Automated External Defibrillator are important because they can save lives. Arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms) such as ventricular fibrillation cause most cardiac arrests. Using an AED can restore the heart’s normal rhythm in the event of cardiac arrest.  Because AEDs are portable, safe and easy to use, they make it possible for people to quickly respond and greatly improve the odds of survival from cardiac arrest. Performing CPR and using an AED before Emergency Medical Services arrive can increase the chance of survival by up to 75 per cent. The Foundation urges anyone in close contact with those at high-risk of cardiac arrest to become trained in the use of AEDs.
