Coffee Shops, 24-Hour ATMs Are The Best Locations for Life-Saving AEDs, U of Toronto Research Shows

U of T Engineering team creates list of top 10 businesses where placing automatic external defibrillators would save lives

TORONTO, CA-- ATMs and coffee shops such as Tim Hortons, Starbucks and Second Cup make ideal locations for placing automated external defibrillators (AEDs), a new study says. University of Toronto Engineering researchers Associate Professor Timothy Chan and PhD student Christopher Sun, in collaboration with St. Michael’s Hospital, found that responding quickly can be the difference between life and death when someone is suffering a cardiac arrest, and that means having immediate access to a nearby AED is crucial – the chances of survival decrease by 10 per cent each minute.
