How does one use an AED with CPR?

An AED will prompt a rescuer when to begin CPR.  Depending on the make and model of the AED, most will provide a metronome or beeps to keep you on track for the rate of compressions.  Also, some AEDs models provide real-time feedback on the rate and/or depth of compressions. The AED will prompt when to stop compressions for analysis and shock, if needed.  Most AED models are programmed to analyze the heart rhythm every two minutes.
