4 doctors agree
In brief: An AED is used in cp
CPR is cardiopulmonary resuscitation, including chest compressions , and an AED is a device used to shock the abnormal rhythm back to normal.
Both are necessary to revive a patient in cardiac arrest.

In brief: Complementary
If someone has a cardiac arrest (heart stoppage), they require immediate CPR to provide artificial and minimal circulation.
An AED is used during CPR to restore cardiac rhythm and thus spontaneous circulation. The sooner an AED is employed during cpr, the better the chance that the victim will survive.
