In brief: Old enough to hear
Numerous studies have shown that for the best designed automated defibrillators, schoolchildren readily learn the operation and safe use of the device.
While it would be preferred to have a well-trained adult utilizing the device, i, for one, will take anybody out there in the event that I should need such a device.
