Using an AED

Using an AED

Being able to provide help to anyone at any time is a powerful thing. That's why, at the Red Cross, AED classes are designed to teach you how to use an automated external defibrillator on both kids and adults. This way, you can provide care - no matter where you are or who the "patient" may be. Unfortunately, unless you take actions to retain your skills, you're likely to forget how and when to use an AED. So, to help you stay prepared we offer online refresher materials that allow you to test your skills as often as you'd like. We also provide you with access to a printable list of the basic steps for using an AED that you can keep at your desk, in your first aid kit, and more - and review them at any time.
