AED stands for “Automatic External Defibrillator”.

I suppose it’s somehow a formal and specific term, but as the name suggests, AED is “a device that automatically removes fibrillation”.

I would like to give further explanation about “fibrillation” in more details from the next time.

But when the heart has a spasm for some reason, the AED automatically analyzes the condition of the heart and determines whether an electric shock is necessary.

It is an easy-to-use device, and even ordinary citizens (non-medical personnel) without medical knowledge can perform lifesaving activities by following the in-built voice prompts.

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time.

Deepening your understanding of AEDs, even a little, might help save one precious life.

When is an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) needed?

The role of an AED is to “restore the heart’s movements to normal when the heart is not working properly for some reason.

” This might happen to anyone, at any time, even to whom don’t have a pre-existing heart condition. The effectiveness of an AED is often misunderstood , but AEDs do not have the function of restoring the heart of a person whose heart has completely stopped. An AED is needed to restore normal heart function before the heart stops completely.


Effects of AED (Automated External Defibrillator)

The heart functions like a pump that pumps blood throughout the body.

Oxygen is also contained in blood, and the heart can send oxygen to the whole body by sending blood to the whole body.

When the heart has a spasm, it loses its pump-like function and is unable to pump oxygen throughout the body.

If this state continues, the survival rate decreases by about 10% every minute, and after 5 minutes the survival rate is less than 50%.

It is necessary to return the heart to normal operation as soon as possible, but even if you wait without doing anything, the heart will not automatically return to normal operation.

You will need an AED for that. If necessary, an AED can deliver an electric shock to return the heart to normal function during a spasm.

Before the heart completely stops, it is necessary to use an AED as soon as possible.


How to use AED (automated external defibrillator)

An AED is so easy to use that anyone can use it. When you open the AED cover, you will hear voice guidance.

When the electrode pads are attached to the patient according to the voice guidance, the AED automatically analyzes the electrocardiogram.

The AED automatically analyzes whether an electric shock is necessary.

You will be instructed to give an electric shock if necessary, but if you do not need to give an electric shock, you will not receive an electric shock even if you accidentally press the button.

Anyone can use an AED at any time. In fact, there are countless cases of people around the world saving lives by using AEDs.

There have been many cases of people finding someone who had collapsed on their way to work and using an AED installed nearby to save their lives.

The more people who understand AED, the more lives will be saved. I hope that correct knowledge about AED will spread widely in Vietnam as well.
