How AED’s work

Most patients, when they become pulseless go through a brief period in which the heart goes into a chaotic quivering due to erratic electrical activity. This is called ventricular fibrillation (VF). VF eventually deteriorates into a total absence of electrical activity, often around ten to fifteen minutes after arrest. The best chance to regain a pulse is when a patient in recent VF is shocked quickly - ideally in less than 4 - 6 minutes after arrest. An AED delivers electrical current through heart muscle, temporarily ceasing all electrical activity in the heart, hoping that when that electrical impulse returns, it will return in an organized pumping action instead of VF.
