Emergency ManagementAED Information
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. If this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. Rapid treatment of SCA with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and an automated external defibrillator (AED) can be lifesaving.
The following videos from Philips Healthcare show you how the HeartStart and FRx AEDs work. Each AED will provide step by step instructions on how to place the pads, whether or not a shock is advised, and will guide you through performing CPR. If you do not have a CPR mask, you can perform chest compression only CPR.
