What is an AED?
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's an easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. Using an AED can dramatically improve the chance of survival.
Look for the AED sign in public places. If you frequent a place that does not have an AED have the organization/location contact the Georgia Arrhythmia Foundation via our AED Grant Tab on this website.
