The new AED location sign makes the following changes to the current one:

  • It changes the lightning bolt icon into a stylised ECG heart trace – respondents overwhelmingly said they would be more likely to use a sign with this icon on.
  • The description is changed to “Defibrillator – Heart Restarter” – respondents said they thought this term would most encourage them to use the device.
  • A supine person was added, showing the suggested placement of the defibrillator pads, to reinforce (by way of a strong visual cue) how the device should be used.
