Automated External Defibrillator

 

John Pietruszka DDS in Staten Island NY

 

The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia on a patient. It is able to treat these arrhythmias through defibrillation, allowing the heart to return to normal rhythm.

The use of the AED is taught in most basic life support (BLS) and cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) courses. Our office keeps the AED on site and is available for any unexpected medical emergencies. Our staff is retrained and recertified in CPR (including AED) every two years.
