A traveler passes an Automated External Defibrillator in Terminal 1 Nov. 12, 2003, at O&rsquo;Hare International Airport in Chicago. An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a user-friendly device that when used properly on a person suffering a sudden cardiac arrest administers an electric shock to the heart. Its built-in microprocessor then assesses the patient&rsquo;s heart rhythm, judging whether more defibrillation would be needed. The Chicago Airport System implemented the first public-access defibrillation program at all its airports, including O&rsquo;Hare International Airport. Defibrillators are strategically located throughout the airport terminals within a one-minute walk from any point in the airport. The units are in cabinets that are directly linked to the City of Chicago&rsquo;s emergency medical services.
