Gender disparities in the application of public-access AED pads among OHCA patients in public locations.

Summary of "Gender disparities in the application of public-access AED pads among OHCA patients in public locations."

Female out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients have been reported to be less likely to receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation by bystanders compared with male patients in prehospital settings. However, no clinical studies have investigated gender disparities in the application of public-access automated external defibrillator (AED) pads among OHCA patients in public locations.
