An automated external defibrillator is an electronic device which is used to analyze a patient heart rhythm. Using Defibrillation component to treat a sudden cardiac arrest is not easy that's why AEDs were designed to use in an emergency where experience is not required. There are so many reasons because of which people suffer from sudden cardiac arrest but only 40% of them will need a shock rest of the patient can be treated by CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).

ADE is basically a device used for the heart attack patients which gives an electronic shock to the heart. Your heart has its own internal electrical system that controls the rate and rhythm of your heartbeat. With each heartbeat, an electrical signal spreads from the top of your heart to the bottom. As the signal travels, it causes the heart to contract and pump blood. You can get detailed information of the same on dae.

Its a small battery operated device that gives you a shock if you go into defribrillation ( your heart doesn't beat as it should. Too fast or erratic beats or even it stops beating). These defibs do not require any outside help. It talks to you Put on 2 pads on patient. Then you turn it on and automatically it senses the hearbeat of the patient. If it needs a shock, again it tells you to not to touch patient, and automatically gives one shock. It calculates it it needs to give other shocks, or not. Philips is a company that makes them. They are a red little box, that you see in any public place.
Because they are automatic to calculate the status of the patient, all it needs is someone to put two pads on the patient.
They also have them in hospitals, besides the regular defibrillators.

Wikipedia says: An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient,[1] and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of AEDs is taught in many first aid, first responder, and basic life support (BLS) level cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes.[2]

If I know CPR, do I still need to have an AED?


Yes. The AED provides an electric shock to the heart, which is the only thing that can resume a normal rhythm to a VF victim. If someone is going into cardiac arrest, CPR will only buy some time until an AED arrives
