Study Shows Best Places To Have Defibrillators (AED’s)

A new study from engineers at the U of T has come up with a Top 10 list of the best places to put automated external defibrillators (AED’s) to increase the chances of saving a life. The researchers identified businesses with 20 or more locations in Toronto, then mapped where out-of-hospital cardiac arrests had occurred between 2007 and 2015. It turns out the AED’s would be most effective in coffee shops like Tim Hortons, Starbucks and Second Cup, as well as at ATM’s for the country’s largest banks. The study is published in the American Heart Association journal.
