Some people may be afraid to use an AED because they’re worried something may go wrong and they might be held responsible or sued. However, most states’ Good Samaritan Laws and the Federal Cardiac Arrest Survival Act (Public Law 106-505) provide some protection for bystanders who respond to emergencies. You cannot hurt yourself using the AED.
