Why Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) Are So Important

Posted by Brendan McSheffrey on 5/9/11 11:25 AM

We ran across this video recently depicting exactly why Automated External Defibrillators are so important to any Life Safety Effort.  There are several things about this video that are worth watching:


  • How AED's work.  If you haven't seen an AED in action, this video will provide you with a real time overview of exactly how these critical devices work in an emergency
  • The victim in this video was surrounded by trained lifeguards, and without the AED is is pretty apparent they would have been unlikely to save the victim's life
  • Time is of the essence when it comes to AEDs.  They need to be close at hand and they need to be where they are supposed to be and fully charged.
