Training lay persons to use automatic external defibrillators: success of initial training and one-year retention of skills.

The American journal of emergency medicine

Cummins RO, Schubach JA, Litwin PE, Hearne TR.
PMID: 2920075
Am J Emerg Med. 1989 Mar;7(2):143-9. doi: 10.1016/0735-6757(89)90126-5.

This study was conducted to determine the feasibility of recruitment of lay persons to use automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), the effectiveness of their initial training, and the need for and frequency of retraining over time. Volunteers (n = 146),...

What is a "save"?: Outcome measures in clinical evaluations of automatic external defibrillators.

American heart journal

Am Heart J. 1985 Dec;110(6):1133-8. doi: 10.1016/0002-8703(85)90002-x.

Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) represent an important technologic innovation in the management of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. We propose the following concept: AEDs are machines with the limited task of ventricular fibrillation (VF) identification, countershock delivery, and defibrillation. They cannot...

Automatic external defibrillators: clinical, training, psychological, and public health issues.

Annals of emergency medicine

Cummins RO, Eisenberg MS, Moore JE, Hearne TR, Andresen E, Wendt R, Litwin PE, Graves JR, Hallstrom AP, Pierce J.
PMID: 4025971
Ann Emerg Med. 1985 Aug;14(8):755-60. doi: 10.1016/s0196-0644(85)80053-6.

Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) will be used by spouses, family members, emergency first-responders, and the citizenry at large. Such use, however, raises a number of clinical, training, psychological, and public health issues. Clinical issues: Is cardiac arrest to be...

Automatic external defibrillators used by emergency medical technicians. A controlled clinical trial.


Cummins RO, Eisenberg MS, Litwin PE, Graves JR, Hearne TR, Hallstrom AP.
PMID: 3546751
JAMA. 1987 Mar 27;257(12):1605-10.

In a randomized controlled clinical trial, the effectiveness of emergency medical technician (EMT) use of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) was compared with EMT use of standard defibrillators for patients in cardiac arrest. A total of 321 cardiac arrest patients...

Defibrillation performed by the emergency medical technician.


Eisenberg MS, Cummins RO.
PMID: 3779936
Circulation. 1986 Dec;74(6):IV9-12.

As a means of providing defibrillation as soon as possible for those suffering out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation, numerous communities have trained and authorized emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to provide defibrillatory shocks (EMT-D). The findings of four controlled studies and the...
