Study: Readiness of public access AEDs is surprisingly low

AED - automated external defibillatorResearch shows that areas of the United States where there are high numbers of unregistered automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, also have an increased failure rate of those AEDs.

Currently, there are no national standards for the maintenance and registration of AEDs.
