Automated External Defibrillators

Automated External Defibrillators– A step by step training guide for the use of AEDs in cardiac arrest.

By David Natoli and John Lippmann

Heart attack is a very common cause of death.  A severe heart attack often results in cardiac arrest.  In this case, the heart usually beats very erratically and cannot generate circulation of blood to the body.  If a normal heartbeat is not restored within a few minutes, the victim will die.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are designed to diagnose cardiac arrest and when appropriate, to deliver an electric shock to try to restore a normal heart rhythm.  They can be used safely by people with minimal training.  This book is an easy to read, step by step training guide to the use of AEDs.
