Although many of our public spaces, schools and venues have AEDs, they are not always available.When a person suffers cardiac arrest, there is a one in five chance a potentially life-saving Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is nearby. But up to 30 per cent of the time, the device is locked inside a closed building, according to a study led by U of T Engineering researchers, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
