The automated external defibrillator (AED) is a computerized medical device that checks a person’s heart rhythm, recognizes a rhythm that requires a shock and can advise the rescuer when a shock is needed. The AED uses voice prompts, lights and text messages to tell the rescuer the steps to take.
Most serious medical emergencies require more trained people than can be staffed on an ambulance to efficiently manage the situation. The fire truck usually arrives first to start a rapid assessment and to provide basic life support including airway management and cardiac defibrillation.
The combination of an ambulance and a fire truck forms a coordinated team to perform life-saving care at traffic accidents, heart attacks or other major medical emergencies.
