This topic is about the possibilities of activation of automatized external defibrillators AED in the fire protection units equipment. Every region of the Czech Republic has a different way as how to activate AED and there are no official regulations or procedures. We suggest an optimal way of how to activate units disposing of AED that would speed up time, before help gets to people with sudden cardiac arrest.
