How does an AED work?

Hello IMPS i just wondered how do A Ed’s actually give an electric shock. I think i know does it come
by the box where the instructions come from and where the buttons are to start the A ED

Great question!  The AED is powered by strong batteries and when you press the flashing orange button on the machine the electric shock goes through the wires and the electrodes which you stick to the patients chest.  Here is some more information about AED’s and how they work.
