AED training with a 3D-printed model and a smartphone app

      Early defibrillation plays a critical role in improving survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). Widespread use of public-access automated external defibrillators (AED) improves survival with a favourable neurologic outcome.
