How to use the AED  



Can anyone use the AED’s or do you have to be trained to use them? 
Is the AED easy enough to use as I’d be too scared to use them without proper training?

Philips AEDs are designed to be easy to use for the complete novice and can be used by anyone. Training is not required for the Philips AEDs and the device will talk the user through the process from removing pads to carrying out Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).

Many people undertake CPR and AED courses for confidence in carrying out CPR and using the device however; it is not a mandatory requirement.
