Defibrillators are easy to use:
Modern AEDs are extremely easy to use. They are designed to provide the rescuer with clear step-by-step instructions of exactly what to do throughout the entire resuscitation process. Many defibs such as HeartSine defibrillators provide you with both visual and verbal prompts, instructing you when and where to attach the electrode pads to the patient, as well as helping to conduct CPR correctly.
You don’t need training to use a defibrillator:
You don’t need to be a medical professional or to have completed any kind of formal training to be able to use a defib. Many AEDs are placed in public spaces and are intended to be used in emergencies, so there won’t always be someone around that has completed defibrillator training. For these reasons, defibs are straightforward enough to be used by those who have never completed training and those who have never had to use a defib before.
