The Heartsaver AED course is designed to teach CPR, use of an external defibrillator (AED), and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction (FBAO) to all layrescuers, particularly those who are expected to respond to emergencies in the work place. It presents information about the AHA adult chain of survival and signs of heart attack, cardiac arrest, stroke and choking adults. The course can also present information about the AHA pediatric infant and child chain of survival and signs of choking in infants and children. Although the course may be used to teach CPR/AED to all lay rescuers, it is specifically designed for lay rescuers who are required to obtain a course completion card - a credential - documenting completion of a CPR AED course.
