Public Access defibrillation (PAD), involves a bystander, trained first responder (e.g. firefighters, police officers) or recruited trained volunteer initiating cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and external defibrillation via an automated external defibrillator (AED) before arrival of emergency medical services (EMS).
