AED - Automated External Defibrilator

Just about everyone has heard the term “AED”, 

but many do not fully understand what it is, and how it works. 

An Automated External Defibrillator or AED is a device that is used to send 

an electrical shock to the heart of a person in Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) 

in order to return the quivering heart to a normal heartbeat rhythm 

so that it can once again pump blood throughout the body.

When using an AED to shock the heart, you can think of the heart like your computer. 

When your computer messes up and freezes and stops responding you reboot it to resolve the problem. 

The AED basically is rebooting the heart in the same way by shocking it.
