INTRODUCTION Immediate accessibility to automated external defibrillators (AED) is recommended for highly frequented public areas. In train terminals and metro stations electromagnetic interference (EMI) is present. In preparation for a public access defibrillation (PAD) programme in this environment possible effects on AED safety and accuracy were studied. METHODS In typical public transportation settings 11 different AED models were bench tested for their sensitivity and specificity of ECG… CONTINUE READING
