Brazil is planning to install automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in 1,220 ambulances by the end of this month. It has budgeted R$5.8m (US$3.3m) for the initiative, according to a health ministry statement. The state’s “mobile emergency health service” (SAMU/192) network operates 1,520 ambulances, of which 300 “mobile intensive care” units already have an AED. The SAMU network serves a population of around 106 million people.
