Mississippi AED Law - House Bill 954 (HB 954)

The Mississippi AED Law has been enacted to protect individuals and organizations that own an AED.  The organizations and individuals must follow the guidelines set forth in the law.  The State of Mississippi AED Law states the following:

"SECTION 2. Any person may use an automated external defibrillator for the purpose of saving the life of another person in sudden cardiac death, subject to the following requirements:

(a) Mississippi licensed physician must exercise medical control authority over the person using the AED to ensure compliance with requirements for training, emergency medical services (EMS) notification and maintenance;

(b) The person using the AED must have received appropriate training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and in the use of an AED by the American Heart Association, American Red Cross, National Safety Council or other nationally recognized course in CPR and AED use;

(c) The AED must not operate in a manual mode except when access control devices are in place or when appropriately licensed individuals such as registered nurses, physicians or emergency medical technician-paramedics utilize the AED; and

(d) Any person who renders emergency care or treatment on a person in sudden cardiac death by using an AED must activate the EMS system as soon as possible, and report any clinical use of the AED to the licensed physician."

The Mississippi AED Law requires owners of an AED to provide trianing in CPR and AED use to staff that would be most likely to use the AED.  A physician should be involved in the AED Program to ensure that the program is compliant with the law.
