Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are portable devices that are capable of delivering an electric shock to the heart to restore a normal rhythm in the case of sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs can be used by trained responders in emergency situations. To learn more about what AEDs are and how you can learn to use one, please visit the American Heart Association website or explore GERMS’ CPR/AED Certification Courses.
