Can an AED be used on a wet surface?

Category: Medical Supplies

Answer:

Yes, as long as the typical safety regulations are used in the process. First make certain that the victim’s chest and the electrodes of the AED are kept away from wet or conductive surfaces. Once they are cleared you can defibrillate as usual.
