Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) accurately analyze cardiac rhythms and, if appropriate, deliver an electric countershock. Automated external defibrillators require minimal training to use. It automatically diagnoses the heart rhythm and determines if a shock is needed. The number of people who survive Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is increasing gradually, thanks to the use of AEDs.
