How to install and use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.
AED are intalled each one at Shin-gwan A&B, In/Ui/Ye/ji-gwan, 6 total.
1. Make sure the sticky pads have good connection with the skin. If the connection isn't good, the
machine may repeat the phrase "check electrodes."
If the person has a lot of chest hair, you may have to trim it. (AEDs usually come with a kit that
includes scissors and/or a razor.) If the person is wearing a medication patch that's in the way, remove
it and clean the medicine from the skin before applying the sticky pads.
2. Remove metal necklaces and underwire bras. The metal may conduct electricity and cause burns. You
can cut the center of the bra and pull it away from the skin.
3. Check the person for implanted medical devices, such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter
defibrillator. (The outline of these devices is visible under the skin on the chest or abdomen, and the
person may be wearing a medical alert bracelet.) Also check for body piercings.
4. Move the defibrillator pads at least 1 inch away from implanted devices or piercings so the electric
current can flow freely between the pads.
5. Check that the wires from the electrodes are connected to the AED. Make sure no one is touching the
person, and then press the AED's "analyze" button. Stay clear while the machine checks the person's
6. If a shock is needed, the AED will let you know when to deliver it. Stand clear of the person and make
sure others are clear before you push the AED's "shock" button.
7. Start or resume CPR until emergency medical help arrives or until the person begins to move. Stay with
the person until medical help arrives, and report all of the information you know about what has
