[*An AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses life-threatening heart-related problems of many types, including sudden cardiac arrest. The equipment can treat a victim through defibrillation, the application of electricity which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple for the layperson.]
