AED stands for automated external defibrillator. It is a device that diagnoses cardiac arrhythmias, fibrillation, and tachycardia. After diagnoses it can treat through defibrillation. Having an automated external defibrillator can possibly save a live because it allows the heart to start beating effectively again by stopping the arrhythmia. Having an AED on hand as well as qualified trained employee who knows how to work it and identify a heart attack allows for peace of mind in the workplace.


Every minute counts during an emergency, and sometimes, when the weather is extreme, medical professionals can take too long to arrive. Having equipment available to use in those first vital moments may mean the difference in life and death.

Be prepared for anything by having an automated external defibrillator on hand and an employee with the ability to use it proficiently. Who knows? The life saved could be your own.

We provide AED training classes so your employees will know how to use the life saving equipment appropriately. If you are looking for an AED in Minneapolis, at Advanced First Aid Inc we carry the best in the industry and offer training classes to meet your companies' life preserving goals.
