Automated External Defibrillators have
been dispensed at locations around Bradford County.
An automated external
defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac
arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia and is able to treat them through defibrillation,
the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the
heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
The first AED was originally designed and created by American biomedical
engineer Joshua L. Koelker and Italian emergency medical professional Jordan M.
Blondino to allow defibrillation in common public places. AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of AEDs is taught in many
first aid, first responder and basic life support level CPR classes.
