What is AED? 

  • Automated External Defibrillator

AED's Importances in the First Aid:  

  • The "Chain of Survival" is made up of "Early Access to the emergency response system, early CPR to support circulation to the heart and brain until normal heart activity is restored, early Defibrillation to treat cardiac arrest caused by Ventricular Fibrillation and early Advanced Care by EMS and hospital personnel".
  • "Early Defibrillation to treat cardiac arrest caused by Ventricular Fibrillation" means getting and using the AED as fast as possible.
  • Most patients (≧8 years old) whose heart stops beating suddenly, first experience ventricular fibrillation and the heart quivers, causing inability of the heart to contract efficiently to eject adequate volumes of blood. The only way to be decided is to use the AED to reestablish the normal heartbeart. Survival rate can be increased substantially if the defibrillation is done as soon as possible within 5 minutes. 

Who Can Use AED?

  • AED is designed specially for non-medical staff, used in first aid for sudden cardiac arrest.
  • People who have not been trained in AED can also save sufferers by AED following the instrustions.
  • NO any legal liability.
