SAVER Project: Automated External Defibrillators

Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are portable defibrillation devices that are used to diagnose cardia arrhythmia and determine whether a shock should be administered to restore a normal heart rhythm. Responders can easily transport AEDs to a victim's location, increasing the likelihood of a victims survival.
