RE: Re: [IP] AEDs

Don you are absolutely correct.  More importantly, please remember that a
piece of metal,
ie: rings or other jewelry, must be in the direct circuit of the current to
cause heat.
The circuit is from the positive to the negative electrodes. The jewelry
will not be.
The point made by Don is of course the most important.  Get it done as
quickly as possible,
save the life first, all else is minor to that effort.
