MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading killer of Americans, but with automated external defibrillators (AEDs) becoming more prevalent, it doesn’t have to be.

Cardiac arrest survivor Jeff Micklos said, “You don’t need to be a medical professional to save lives.”

Micklos said the idea behind the AED is that it’s a relatively easy-to-use device that nearly anyone could use to help someone suffering from cardiac arrest.

If you’re interested in learning more about AEDs, the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association will have an event at the Millenium Hotel in Minneapolis Saturday starting at 8 a.m.

It’s $15 to attend.
