Description

Defibrillators tagged in OSM are automated external defibrillator (AED), a first-aid device that automates the process of diagnosing life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia and performing defibrillation. Automated external defibrillators can be found in a growing number of public places, although they are sometimes restricted to use by persons with formal first-aid training.

Status

This feature was previously tagged as emergency=aed or medical=aed but a new poll showed that the plain word is preferred to its abbreviation; see Proposed features/automated external defibrillator.

Tags to use in combination

  • opening_hours=*, if the defibrillator is only accessible during certain opening hours.
  • phone=*, number of the location responsible for the device.
  • defibrillator=manual, if the device is not automated (e.g., in hospitals emergencies).
  • defibrillator:location=*, a textual description where the device is located (e.g., "in the porter's lounge"). Formerly aed:location; if you are a data user, please recognize both.
  • access=*, if the access to the device is restricted.
  • indoor=*, if the defibrillator is mounted on a wall, clarify with this tag whether it is the external or internal side of the wall.
