Automated External Defibrillators, or AEDs, are life-saving devices that use electric shocks to return a heart in cardiac arrest to a normal rhythm. Whilst AEDs are relatively easy to use, having an understanding of how they work can make the difference between life and death in an emergency.

This AED defibrillator training provides an understanding of what AEDs are, how to set them up and use them alongside CPR.

Why This Defibrillator Training is Vital

Every year, around 100,000 people die of sudden cardiac arrest in the UK. Out of these, only 1 in 10 people live to be discharged from the hospital.  This makes cardiac arrest one of the country’s biggest killers.

When such cardiac arrests happen, CPR used with AEDs provide the victim the best chance of survival. And have been shown to increase survival rates from 6% to 75%.
