AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR (AED)
An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated, yet 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.
This livesaving equipment may be found at Level G and Level 12 lobby area.
