Automated External Defibrillation (AED) is well established as the most effective therapy for cardiac arrest and the scientific evidence to support early defibrillation is overwhelming. The single most determinant factor of survival is the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock. Basic life support may help to sustain a patient however the a definitive treatment is the use of a defibrillator. With the chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of 7-10% with each minute its important for as many people as possible to know how to use this life saving piece of equipment!
