About AED (Automated External Defibrillator)

AED (automated external defibrillator) automatically determines whether an electric shock (defibrillation) is necessary when the heart trembles and cannot send blood to the whole body (ventricular fibrillation). It is a medical device that enables the user to easily perform an electric shock. Since July 2004, AEDs have become available for use by the general public, and are being installed in public facilities. We have summarized the installation locations of Osaka City facilities (including related facilities), so please use them as a reference in case of an emergency.
