HealthDay News
Updated: Apr 11th 2019

(HealthDay News) -- Automated external defibrillators can save lives during sudden cardiac arrest, says the Red Cross.

For children aged 8 or older and adults, bystanders can follow these AED steps after calling 9-1-1:

  • Turn on the AED and follow the prompts.
  • Open the person's shirt and wipe the bare chest dry.
  • Attach the AED pads.
  • Make sure no one is touching the person.
  • Push the analyze button.
  • If the AED recommends delivering a shock, ensure no one is touching the person again.
  • Once clear, press the shock button.
  • Begin CPR after delivering the shock and continue following the AED's prompts.
