Awareness of AED Units Leads to Use

While by no means scientific, we’re increasingly seeing “evidence” that general AED awareness promotes AED lay rescuer usage. And, as we know, using an AED increases the likelihood of saving a victim in SCA. In a recent story in Phoenix, there were two saves in 24 hours. One save occurred at a show and another at an ice rink, both due to the efforts of quick-thinking bystanders. Bystander use of AEDs is very encouraging, as it leads us to believe such action can be replicated in other communities across the country.
