Can anyone use an AED?
Anyone can use an AED. Training is strongly suggested as it is required by a number of state and local governments. Even though AEDs are designed for easy use by untrained laypersons, we recommend formal training in their operation, along with CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) techniques outlined by the American Heart Association (AHA) or the American Red Cross (ARC). Training courses can help potential responders learn of the signs and symptoms of cardiac arrest and, therefore, what to do before, during, and after an emergency situation. The AED Superstore offers CPR/AED training courses and other training classes that follow the AHA’s guidelines. Contact us to learn how we can come to your facility to train your team!
