Automated External Defibrillator (AED) locations
Publically accessible Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) help save lives.
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device for treatment of life-threatening instances of cardiac arrest.
The AED assesses a patient’s medical situation and then delivers a measured electrical shock to restore the normal effective cardiac rhythm, if required.
AEDs are designed to be easy to use for the inexperienced / general public.

State AED register
A register of defibrillators is being set up in South Australia. The SA Ambulance Service wants businesses, community groups and individuals to report automated external defibrillators (AEDs) that are publicly accessible.
If you register your AED, it will allow emergency response agencies to direct a caller to the AED so that it can be used in a cardiac emergency until an ambulance arrives.
