What’s the difference between manual defibrillation and an AED?

Manual defibrillation allows the rescuer to adjust the level of energy delivered to the patient, as well as when a shock should be delivered, while an AED does not. Manual defibrillators are meant to be used by trained professionals, where as AEDs are considered public access devices that can be used by anyone whether trained or untrained.
