AED Challenge is a training tool that provides a computer-simulated environment for practicing automated external defibrillation (AED) skills. It gives realistic practice to students who are learning to use an AED and helps experienced AED users keep their skills sharp.

AED Challenge simulates a variety of sudden cardiac arrest scenarios. Your objective is to provide rapid treatment and defibrillation. The program gives advice, feedback, and scores performance. AED Challenge gives defibrillation-trained personnel quality practice whenever it is needed. AED Challenge follows the 2005 American Heart Association (AHA) and European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC)

AED Challenge was designed for review and practice of AED protocol knowledge by emergency responders. It is not a self-instructional program. It is intended to supplement training conducted by a qualified instructor and supervised by a licensed physician. This application is not a replacement for initial hands-on training using an actual device.

The treatment recommendations contained in this application meet national and international guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated defibrillation. It is not intended to be a substitute for device operating instructions and local protocols.
