- AEDs were formerly only able to be used by trained medical personnel, but as of July 1st, 2004, ordinary citizens have been permitted to use them.
- To use and AED, simply open the cover. The power will be turned on automatically, and it is then simply a matter of following the audio instructions. AEDs are easy to operate, even for first time users.
- Chances of survival are greatly increased when an AED is used in conjunction with heart massage and CPR.
