Automated External DefibrillatorBy
The automated external disturber later has been around for approximately 15 years. The AED is very instrumental in playing a part in saving a person’s life who is found to be in Ventricular Fibrillation. The American Red Cross has been using the automated external defibrillator for nearly 28 years. No one knows how effective the advanced cardiac life support algorithm has been unless they read the Journal of emergency medical magazine. Although, they use many cardiac medications the one common denominator is the use of electrical current passed through the heart. The only way that we can deliver electrical current through the heart muscle is by using the AED which was developed by physio- control many years ago. Today we can find these machines or devices throughout our airports, high schools, court houses, or any place where there is the potential for a large gathering. To better understand the use of the automated external defibrillator, please visit the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross.
