circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest

First Aid

Is the first and immediate assistance given to any person suffering from either a minor or serious injury
with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery.
Basic principles, such as knowing the use of adhesive bandage or applying direct pressure on a bleed, are
often acquired passively through life experiences. However, to provide effective, life-saving first aid
interventions requires instruction and practical training. This is especially true where it relates to
potentially fatal illnesses and injuries, such as those that require CPR; these procedures may be invasive,
and carry a risk of further injury to the patient and the provider

Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Is a portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can
potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following
sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly.
Different types of defibrillators work in different ways. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs), which
are in many public spaces, were developed to save the lives of people experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
Even untrained bystanders can use these devices in an emergency.
