Automated External Defibrillator - An AED is a portable device that can be used by trained laypersons to deliver an electric shock to the heart of someone experiencing Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA.) AEDs are portable, easy to use, and the key to increasing the survival rate of SCA victims. Having an AED within minutes of a victim of SCA could be the difference between life and death.
