AED

 

An automated external defibrillator is a device the size of a laptop computer, employed to reinstate a normal heart rate following a sudden heart arrest. The AED is a portable, automatic device that is applied to the patient's chest in order to analyze the heart rate and determine if a shock is necessary to re-establish the normal heart beat of the patient. When administrating a shock to the patient, the heart stops completely and gets the chance of going back to its normal rate. If this state is achieved, the heart has been defibrillated.
