Here is a great video demonstrating how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). AED machines can be used by individuals who don’t necessarily have a medical background. It is a good idea for all stores and public places to have one on hand in case of an emergency. It is even smart for seniors to have one in their home. The correct use can save a life.
Enjoy the video:
In this video, the AHA instructor is going through the step-by-step procedure as it would be taught in a BLS for healthcare provider’s class in CPR Tampa’s Palm Harbor area. This same information is also taught in any HeartSaver CPR class. The only difference is that in a Basic Life Support class there would also be a skills test on a 2 person team rescue. In this case, one rescuer would be giving heart compressions and the other would be using the bag mask in between AED use. In the HeartSaver class only a one rescuer skills check is covered.
Thanks for viewing our video. We hope it was helpful.
