The National AED Registry Fills Critical Information and Communications
When sudden cardiac arrest strikes, bystanders immediately call 911. However,
911 dispatchers generally lack information about the presence of AEDs at, and nearby, an SCA victim’s location. When
combined with Atrus’ AED Link™ system, the National AED Registry™ fills the critical information gap by
advising 911 dispatchers of the location of nearby registered AEDs.
The National AED Registry (www.NationalAEDRegistry.com) is a robust data repository containing information about the presence and location of registered publicly accessible AEDs.
The information from the National AED Registry is used by Atrus’ AED Link system to generate and transmit a real-time
map showing 911 dispatchers the locations of registered AEDs at and nearby SCA victims. This information can be used
to verbally direct the caller to ask a secondary bystander to a nearby registered AED.
The Registry is
also used as the official AED Registry for the State of Maryland (marylandaedregistry.com), State of Minnesota (minnesota.nationalaedregistry.com),
the District of Columbia (aedregistry.dc.gov) and Orange County, FL (orangecountyfl.nationalaedregistry.com).
