The 2017 World First Aid Day, themed “First aid and family accidental injury”, was held on September 9.

To celebrate the occasion, an automated external defibrillator (AED) was placed near a blood donation vehicle in front of the gate of the Nanjing Cenbest Department Store, and a ceremony was held to mark the beginning of using AEDs in public places in Nanjing.

The most prominent feature of an AED is that it can identify whether sudden cardiac arrest is caused by ventricular fibrillation or not, and will automatically complete the defibrillation process during an episode, which includes discharging high-energy electric current to a patient’s heart.
