Anyone who has minimal CPR and AED training can use an AED to help save a life.
Many people around the world are trained, including police and security officers, firefighters, athletic trainers, flight attendants and lifeguards. Newly-developed AEDs such as the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED offer greater ease of use and can be found in schools, health clubs, community centers, religious communities, homes and many other locations. AEDs are designed to help people with minimal training use them safely in tense, emergency situations. They have numerous built-in safeguards and are designed to deliver a shock only if the AED detects one or more shocks are necessary.
Their ease of use and built-in safety mechanisms make AEDs suitable for use in community or company-wide programs.
