An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.
You have have seen AEDs in public places like shopping malls, subway stations and more. With the countless number of people who pass through our temple building in any given year, the wise investment was made to purchase an AED device for the temple.
