What does an AED do?
A Defibrillator is an important device that can save lives.
It's used when someone's heart stops beating suddenly, a situation known as Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). This can happen because of different health problems.
Every year, over 30,000 people experience SCA. Sadly, if they don't get immediate help through defibrillation and CPR, less than 5% make it. The longer someone waits for defibrillation, the lower their chances of survival – it drops by 10% with each passing minute.
But, if a Defibrillator is used quickly, within the first few minutes of the cardiac arrest, the chances of surviving can go up to 70%. That's why it's really important for more people to know about Defibrillators, where to find them, and how to use them.

When do you use an AED ?
When someone is not responding – that is, you cannot wake them up – that is the time to call 000 and send for an AED. If the person is not breathing normally, which may include no breathing at all or unusual sounds like gasping or snoring, it's time to initiate CPR and use the AED as quickly as possible.
