Defibrillators have evolved greatly in the past few decades, making it easier for schools, government agencies, private businesses and residences to have access to the life-saving technology. Traditional defibrillators seen in medical facilities are manually operated by professionals along with the use of EKG monitoring to decide if a patient needs shocking.
With the advent of automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, non-medical professionals can operate the machine utilizing either audible or visual prompts to administer shocks to the heart. The shock restores a rapid heart rhythm to a normal heart rhythm and reduces valuable time in life threatening situations prior to admission to a hospital.
