AEDs are seen located in most offices and public buildings. Some local cities, towns, and councils have made it a point of making them available in various locations in the street. These common placements mean more people are exposed to seeing them, and often wondering how to use an AED. AEDs are used to assist someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. While good health is often taken for granted by many of us, especially when it involves children, having access to an AED can save a life.
Knowing how to use an AED is critical, and they can be used on children over one year old. Fortunately, public AEDs are designed so that training on their use is not required, which makes learning how to use one relatively straightforward.
