AEDEM – AED
AED European Map is a project initiated by Dr. Violetta Raffay and Mr.
Jerzy Jaskuła .
The aim is to create complete map localizing all Automated External
Defibrillators (AED) in public places available across Europe.
For the time being, the task has been successfully executed in Poland and
the database has been included in the mobile application “Save Life” which
guides the users step by step through cardiopulmonary resuscitation
algorithm (CPR) in case of cardiac arrest, based on current ERC Guidelines.
The project is also supported by the Save Life Foundation, Poland.
Some of the countries within ERC network already confirmed their
contribution and support to this project.
Everyone can participate in creation of a national AED Map. Should you know
any location not included in "Save Life" database, please follow
