    How about an AED app? Plug the pads into the headphone or USB jack

    I think it's an interesting idea, but don't see it working well a lot of the time. But I guess if it only works once, it has made a difference right?

    I like the idea of knowing where the closest AED would be. With AEDs starting to pop up in more and more places, I could see this being adapted to be used by dispatch centers to let callers know when one is in close proximity.

    But as far as alerting people to go help? Ehhh... How many times do we get dispatched for a "cardiac arrest" only to find the pt just passed out or better yet, sitting there talking to us when we get there?
