AED’S -Automated external defibrillator machines offer lifesaving shock therapy, they are comprised of the following components:

  • Electrode pads - are the sticky pads that are applied to the patient’s chest - these are what reads the patient’s heart rhythm. If a shock is determined to be necessary by the AED’s processor, then the shock travels between the pads and through the patient’s heart.
  • Battery - is used to charge the AED’s capacitor so that it has enough energy to deliver a life-saving shock
  • Capacitor - stores and releases energy
  • Processor - a.k.a the brains behind the AED. The processor is used to analyze the patient’s heart rhythm to determine whether the patient needs a shock or not.
