What is an AED & Why are they important?

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a device designed to deliver an electric shock to people experiencing cardiac arrest, restoring the heart rhythm to normal. AEDs can be used by people who are not healthcare professionals, providing a tool that can save lives before first responders could arrive on the scene of an emergency.

According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, approximately 356,000 people in the US each year experience a cardiac arrest out of the hospital, and nine out of ten die. However, when bystanders intervene immediately, survival rates double or triple.

We are working closely with our partners, AHN, UPMC and Sharon Regional, to increase cardiac arrest survival rates by distributing AEDs to public facilities where they may most often be needed.
