Heart Rhythms (AED training)
AED training is a part of all the CPR training courses. A built-in safeguard in the AED prevents it from shocking a person who will not benefit from the electrical shock, like a person with no electrical activity (“flat line”). The AED is designed to detect the following rhythms.
- Normal Sinus Rhythm – This is the normal activity of the heart muscle. The activity of the heart is coordinated and the muscle contractions provide a pulse.
- Ventricular Fibrillation or V-Fib (VF) – The electrical rhythm of a victim with V-Fib is uncoordinated. The ventricles of the heart are unable to pump blood effectively because of uncoordinated contractions.
- Asystole (Flat Line) – No electrical activity or heart muscle contractions are present. Shock is never applied to patients who are flat-lined, unless continuous CPR is being given.
- Pulseless Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) – The electrical rhythm of VT is that of a heart muscle that is very rapid and uncoordinated. With this rapid contraction of the ventricles, the atria is not completely filled with blood resulting in no detectable pulse.
