Around a million of them have been sold around the U.S.
But new research finds the devices are often too far out of

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania studied the
locations of more than 2,000 AED's and found that just 7 percent of
cardiac arrests happened within a 200–foot radius of a device.
Their findings show that AED's need to be more
strategically placed and they need to find better ways to help people find them
in an emergency.
