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.

Hint for using this data

Remember to call emergency services immediately in case of life-threatening situations (probably even before trying to locate an AED) [1].

How to map

Draw tag emergency=defibrillator as a node.
