FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I HAVEN’T BEEN TRAINED TO USE AN AED. CAN I STILL USE ONE SAFELY IF I THINK SOMEONE IS IN CARDIAC ARREST?
Yes you can.
If you suspect someone is in cardiac arrest, your first call should be for first aid and 911 for medical attention. If you have an AED on site, it is safe to administer treatment with this device. AEDs are fool proof. If you place the AED on a person that is not in cardiac arrest, the unit will not allow you to administer a shock.
You can use an AED with no training whatsoever. And you can use an AED correctly with no training whatsoever… So it takes no training, no education. Its fool proof to use. So for most of us, the majority of Canadians, you don’t need any certification.

These can be operated by anyone. Its got a voice command that tells you exactly what to do and the best thing is that its fool proof. If you put it on somebody and for some reason they are not going into cardiac arrest, you’re not a medical professional, you don’t know what’s going on, it won’t go off. So you can’t accidentally shock somebody.
